Astonian, the cycle track is no more and I'm sure some member will know more about that, Graham.in the early fifties salford brought in a cycle race track as time went on it got very popular on sundays and then they started to have official race meeting there
and as far i am aware its still being used today
You may be interested in this Pathe newsreel i've found, it shows the hydroplane racing on salford park reservoir in 1952.Remember it well, it was hydroplane racing on the reservoir, when it was much bigger than it is now, it was made smaller when they re-routed the river to make way for part of spaghetti junction.
The pool was drained to build the expressway and all the fish moved to Witton Lakes and Brookvale Park. There was a TV article and an enormous pike taken out.spent many happy days fishing in Salford park in the 60s I am sure there was a big pike in there but I never saw it
