Race for the Roses

Here's what was left of the racecar track in the early 1990's, reincarnated as a garden. (Is the layout still there now?)

The track and light pole in this photo is still there today, its rather grown over and run down now but its interesting to see.

The layout was there as of yesterday (April 24 2010). As I stood there viewing it, I felt a wave of nostalgia, regret and disgust that a such icon from my past was forever gone...

June 29th, 2012-None of this is there anymore. The flag pole and a couple of lonely cement pads are all that is left of this spectacular island. There is a levee across the length of it that required the city to remove what was left of the park (and it's history). Sad.
