the track had a lot of attendees, exciting races, even some decent concession stands.... but has all given way to some kind of semi-truck driving school.

The Maywood Park Race Track was certainly an iconic place for horse racing, especially harness racing. We went there for an afternoon, but we learned that Maywood Park Race Track was closed in January 2016, due to bankruptcy. .

This was a great place to go for an evening out with the family. Kids liked to walk outside to the track and see the horses close up. Very sad day to see it close.

This place is fun for a couple hours or a full day! WHen I was little, I brought activities to do between each race. You bet on which horse you want to win, and in a few minutes, you see which one wins!
