Patrons of Minoru Racetrack
As part of the construction program for the Minoru Complex, new heritage wraps on storage containers have been unveiled in Minoru Park. A selection of archival photographs has been sourced from the Richmond Archives to remind residents of the history and continued importance of the Minoru Civic Precinct to the recreational and social life of Richmond residents. Three of the containers, which are being used as storage and to house electrical controls on the construction site that will eventually be home to the new Minoru Complex, have been wrapped with images of present and past uses of Minoru Park. The horse racing images depict a time when Minoru Park was home to what was at one time considered the best racetrack in western North America.
