The Visit :
The area is surrounded with big parking which is open for public. It is very easy to get near the entrance of the stadium, but its a trap, there are lots of hidden cameras over there and also security guy lives next to entrance!! i was half way climbing the entrance that i heard some lots of key noises and try to open one of the doors near the entrance. i get down from there and wait until the little overweight guy come to me and i ask him is it possible that i took some pictures . he let me in for 2 minutes and he was standing next to me to make sure i leave the property . but he was very nice guy but not very in the mood for chat !!! on the way back of the inside the stadium i saw lots of hidden cameras inside entrance area. so if you enter from front you definitely gonna caught by cameras.
this is my first report so i hop its not that bad !

History :
Racing was first held on 19 May 1928. The site had been purchased by South London Greyhound Racecourses Ltd who then experienced financial difficulties. W J Cearns, owner of the building firm, put in a large sum of money to help get the stadium up and running. Wimbledon became one of the major tracks of Britain after a new grandstand was constructed to replace the war damaged section of the stadium. The local professional football team AFC Wimbledon has considered a move here, after the stadium was put up for sale in 2007. However, such a move would necessitate rebuilding the stadium. Wimbledon Greyhound Stadium is currently owned by Galliard Homes Limited, who purchased the site from the Greyhound Racing Association.

It's still active I think, their twitter account was posting a few days ago and the website is full of upcoming events. And I just phoned them up and they confirmed they're not closed, or closing soon.

I went on a corporate function here in the late 90s with laid on buffet for about 100 people and the next day half of us were sick... as dogs!

You are absolutely right ! apparently its not abounded
I know AFC bought this place for new stadium but people who lives on this area are against it because of traffic. so AFC still struggling with councils and people.
