Caerleon Comprehensive School and the municipal golf course now occupy the area the racecourse covered.
Brian Blythe in his 'Memories of Caerleon 1935 - 1950' recalled:
"I remember the last Meeting on the Racecourse. The horses went so far from the Grandstand, right down to the river, that a loudspeaker gave a commentary which could be heard in Newport. Caerleon people got work as 'gate guards' but there were so many other ways in that not many people paid."
