Another Good Day at the Union Fair

It always amazes me the responses resulting from talking about lost trotting parks. The talk may be about horses, great grandparents, or about local communities and the location of their trotting park. Pete Jolliffe shared with me his experiences walking on the land where the China's trotting park was located. Brian Read spent time to help me locate the trotting park in Washington off Razorville Road.Brain also said that Washington was initially called Putham. Another person stated that there was a trotting park in Warren where new condominiums have been built. Elmer Ballad who now lives in Gorham was raised in Hartland. He told me about the time he walked in and found Hartland's old trotting track. Following are Google Earth images found based on our conversations.

Take a look at the following Google Earth aerials. Do you see possible lost trotting parks locations?
