17.23: Racetrack at Minnedosa

The racetrack 1 at the town of Minnedosa is located north of the built-up area 2. Two baseball diamonds 3 are located inside the track which looks as if it is now disused. Northeast of town is Minnedosa Lake 4 which has been the venue of several regional, national, and international rowing and paddling events. Compare the cottage development west of the lake 5 with that seen on figure 8.42, a much earlier photo. The large building with a light-coloured roof 6 is probably a hockey rink.
