Back in the day

How good was McCabe Park in Wollongong more than fifty years ago. On Saturday afternoon you could play Rugby and watch the racing bikes at night going around the Velodrome. On Sunday morning you could play tennis on courts. Even the Council started a raffle to gather money for a full sized swimming pool. Now if the big potato was removed, opportunities to use this space would be accomplished. As well as that, a cable car could be built to travel from the Illawarra Rhododendron Gardens in Parrish Ave up to the Summit at Mt Keira.
