A nice place with flush green park where you can spend your evenings with family & friends. If you are interested in open area fitness then this place is very ideal. There are no major children play area which is a downside and not much of open food stalls, in case you need to munch something.

Great way to spend an hour or two. Free. Entry, High Priced Beers and low wagering make this place a worthwhile visit! Taking a close look at the horses do not give a positive insight as to their condition!! Definite concerns on what horse to bet on!

What a beautiful place!! This was my first time here, visiting friends who live close by. The setting is breathtaking looking at the mountains and the races at the same time. I loved that you could get so close to all the horses and see them warming up, whether they are skittish or calm. Walk through the tunnel and let... More

My MIL told me about the Seabiscuit tour. I did a little research and found that the tour was free to the public, took 45 minutes, and covered the grounds at the park most weekends. We made it to the 9:45 departure time. There was a tram tour and then a question answer session one of the barns. Our guide... More

We took our autistic son here during family day. They have family day in the center of the track with loads of carnival rides and entertainment. About the one thing is they shut down the rides during the races so not to distract the horses. Yet, once a race is done, they rides are right back up and running. Very... More
