I hadn’t been there is 20 years as it had started to seem run down without a good attendance. But after going with our adult kids and spouses it was a pleasant surprise with the new improvements and food vendors. Very clean and well maintained.

I recommend getting a table to spread out and look at the forum. Missed Paul Allen on the pre show. The quarter houses are fun to watch. The staff was very helpful and answered any question we had.

When the horses are running, it can get very exciting. Other times, you can play cards to recupe the cash you lose on the horses.

I live close to Canterbury Park. But I did not think I would like the horse racing. But a friend asked me to go with him and I have a very good time it was fun.

Great place to get together with family, friends, etc. Works for all ages really. Horse races are exciting, the time in between is perfect for chatting and you have a chance to win a couple bucks! You can sit in certain areas for free but...More
