There is a free shuttlebus direct to the Racecourse every 30 minutes from Renfrew Skytrain station, a quick way to get there from downtown Vancouver. There are also several regular bus routes that serve the location. During the very busy time the PNE is on (20 Aug to 5 Sep in 2016) there will be no free shuttle and the... More

I'm a regular UK racegoer so was looking forward to our Sunday afternoon trip to Hastings Park. The track itself is similar to the majority US / Canadian racetracks with a flat oval circuit and large stands that sadly now only house a fraction of the crowds they could. The racing was fun and not especially competitive and my general... More

Living a few minutes away from the home of racing (Newmarket) a visit to Hastings Park was an experience. It was free. No bookmakers only a tote system. This detracts from the atmosphere in my opinion. The meeting was not well attended but people seemed to be having fun. The track is adjacent to the Pacific Coliseum & the PNE.

Hastings Park Racecourse is located within the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) grounds and is about 2.5 miles east of the downtown business core. One can wager as little as a few dollars and playing the slots (one arm bandits) is just a few steps away. For those who enjoy feeding their faces a buffet is also available. Pay parking is... More

We went to Hastings race as part of our trip to Canada as it is something we love to do back home in the UK. The track is dated and a little run down but we were there to enjoy the races and that was fun! The parade ring and winners circle is in good condition and the best part... More

I took some ladies who had never been to Hastings Park. We all had a blast. From the great music blasting around, the local beer carts, the abundance of machines for betting and the exciting atmosphere there is always something to do. Kids are welcome.

Lots of fun at this race track! Food was good, drinks are available for purchase. Nice TV to see up-close action. Was charmed by the ladies' hats which they sell at the race track.

The restaurant has a great layout. The view is tremendous plus each table has its own closed circuit TV of the race. The main reason I wanted to write this review was to say that Winnie (sp?) at the buffet table is a truly lovely person. A real gem. We also enjoyed our server Sonja. The buffet could be so... More
