Great place to enjoy an afternoon of live horse racing. Club house and grandstand is clean, modern and spacious. To sit at a table in the club house section you must pay for a reservation, $10 with drink service and $15 to include food service. You can get burgers, dog, brats, and fries at the grill but can only get... More

Small race track in comparison to San Anita and Church Hill Downs, but still impressive. Live races offered on Fridays Saturdays and sundays when during the racing season. Occasionaly races take place on holidays as well. Lots of fun!

You can make a fun day out of a visit to Arapahoe Park. There's plenty of parking and admission is reasonable; get a table for the afternoon. The food is a little over-priced but that's to be expected at someplace like this. You can wander down to the track or over to the stables, or you can stay in the... More

Always have fun there. It is a small town track, and as such it is really very good. Up until this year I would have given it a 5. Four of us always go together at least twice a summer. And we get there and have lunch which is usually plain fare but pretty good. This year is was C**P.... More

We go here about once a year with my parents, my brother and his family. We're not big gamblers but we all usually put down (ie - lose) a few bucks with each visit and always enjoy ourselves. The building is not a dump by any means and has always had plenty of seating each time we visited. There is... More

The horses were beautiful. The people watching was great fun. Entrance fees were $3 for adult general admission. We went in a group had had a great day at the races. Brochures at entrance do a great job of explaining how to wager for those that need the help (like me).

I've been to the Meadowlands, Monmouth Park and Saratoga Springs and this was the cleanest, least expensive and uncrowded horse track. It's just always a great place to bring people from out of town for some inexpensive betting/entertainment. Love it.

I've been to many tracks. This one is a little jewel tucked away in Aurora, CO. Very clean, comfortable and user friendly. The horses are not those you find at Saratoga or Santa Anita, but the racing is competitive and they also have a little simulcast area.

Had a few extra hours to spend so we drove out to the horse races. While adults can gamble, it's also a fun family outing. Races ran about every 20 minutes. Nice indoor seating or outdoors by the action. $3 admittance fee ($2 seniors and under 17 are fee) is reasonable and parking was free. About 10-15 minutes out of... More
