17.25: Racetrack at McCreary

In this case the racetrack 1 is located east of the built-up area of McCreary 2, the other side of the tracks—the CN railway line 3. Some roads run parallel to the railway line 4, including what appears, from its width, to be the Main Street 5. East/west roads 6 though harmonize with the DLS system producing some parallelogram- shaped blocks 7. The large building in the southwest corner of town is a hockey rink 8 with a narrow building housing a curling rink to the west 9.

The north/south trending PTH 5 bypasses McCreary to the west 10. As usual, sewage lagoons are located well outside the built-up area, in this caes to the northeast 11 McCreary is the closest town to the Mount Agassiz Ski Hill and has gained some economic benefit from its proximity.
