COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (CBS4) – The former Mile High Greyhound Park in Commerce City will soon be history.

Demolition crews started tearing down the old dog track on Saturday.

For more than 60 years the venue drew thousands from across Colorado. But when greyhound racing ended four years ago, the city decided to buy the property.

“There are 65 acres here that we are going to redevelop, two or three of which we are going to donate to the Boys & Girls Club,” Rene Bullock with Commerce City said.

The rest of the property will be mixed use development with housing and retail space.

The main grandstand is set to be demolished next month.
