Overview
More
Described as "the most beautiful track in America", Arlington began Thoroughbred racing on October 13, 1927, when more than 20,000 fans braved the cold weather to celebrate the event in high style. Since then, Arlington International has become a social destination and perfect summer hangout to watch and wager on the amazing sport of Thoroughbred horse racing! Arlington offers beautiful venues for everything from corporate outings to reunions to weddings, and it's the ideal spot for groups of friends to catch-up, watch the ponies and meet new people. From Miller Lite Party in the Park on Friday, to Miller Lite Horses & Hops on Saturdays, to Sunday Family Days presented by Daily Herald and Lipton Iced Tea, it's always a great time!

This place is fantastic for a work outing. We have a group of 140 and this place has it all - you're outside, there is food & drinks, you can bet or not - it seems to be fun for all.

Arlington Park is a great facility to spend a nice day with friends. Food pretty much sucks but let’s be honest. That is not why you go there. The horses are not the greatest due to narrow minded people who will not allow slots. Their...More

I feel that as long as you bring in your own food, don't over indulge in the adult beverages (as they are pricey), and bring kiddos their own drinks, you can have a great time without breaking the bank. We don't bet when we go...More

Yes. As the person above stated, many people park along the fence line. They have a great view from there, plus they avoid the traffic jam when it's over.
