Black Canyon Greyhound Park


If you drive north from Phoenix on Interstate 17, you will run across the small town of Black Canyon. Sitting in the northern part of the settlement is the Black Canyon Greyhound Park. This abandoned building was once bustling with crowds of fans watching the dog races.  In 1982, it closed its doors for good.  Today, the only thing running through its hollowed walls are desert critters.

Although Sharon and I did not go inside the building to explore, I heard that once you pass through the large glass doors the building appears much bigger from the inside. The sky and desert surroundings are apparent through the missing walls and ceiling. From the debris on the ground to the yellowing lights above, this enormous building is one to explore.  The next time, we are checking out the inside.
