It is nice relaxing way to spend an afternoon. We did not spend a large amount of money but bet a little on each race to make it exciting,

This is our second time having our Grochow family reunion at Canterbury. We enjoyed ourselves, the weather was great, the food was superb, and the horse racing was fun. Will come back again. Free pony rides and face painting for the kids.

Canterbury is great at making horse races so family friendly. On Sundays they have face painting, mini horse rides, and small petting zoo. They allow kids to pet and feed the helping horses on the side of the park. There are lots of food choices and we really had fun watching the bulldog races! It's a great outdoor or indoor... More

Attended a special event hosted by the park for wine tasting and racing last night. It was held in Longshots, a separate venue with in the park, located on the second level with a great view of the track. We had a ball. The price included admission, racetrack profile for the day, appetizers, and all you can taste in wines.... More

They have special promotional events that are fun. They just installed new wagering monitors. They have $1 nights that include $1 hot dogs and admission and programs on... More

Great venue for local and national racing. The bar on the third floor is warm with very entertaining racing enthusiasts. You must stop if you are watching the ponies run. Thank you for the great service, conversation and betting advise!

We like to meet up with family and friends when we are in the cities. This place is great for that. There are usually special events on weekends. I'd recommend reserving an indoor table with your own server and someone to make your bets for you. However - I'm a big finish line fan - so walk down and watch... More

Facility is very nice with plenty of seating and food options. This place has a ton of different food from cheese curds, to funnel cakes, to mini donuts, to famous daves, yum! Oh, and did I mention, gambling on horses!
