“Very disappointing”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

Restaurants are dirty & so are the restrooms. Can't play machines because people are holding them with their dirty cups on the chair while they are either dancing or smoking. People are rude. Change machines are always out of service. Old slot machines. Looks dated. Needs mayor upgrades. Food was not the best. This place is not worth it. Parking is too far scary to walk around by yourself. Would NOT recommend at ALL

Reviewed November 27, 2013

It's a good park for a few handicap bet's or just see the horses race , the restaurants are not that good but ok great parking if you get there early , the casino is great two floors for gambling . one more thing the horse racing stop for the winter . It may not be Vegas but it's are Vegas only if you like to have some fun.

“Live or Virtual its a great day at The Park!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Live racing ended recently for the winter season, but there is plenty to do when its cold or rainy outside, at Delaware Park! Free parking, free admission, and simulcast racing from all over the US. You dont have to be a professional handicapper or gambler to bet a dollar or two on a horse with a funny name! And its all about fun with friends at Dekaware Park.
Of course live racing is the best time to be there especially with groups and family. Picnic area and seeing the thoroughbred horses close up is a thrill for kids of all age. Grounds are clean and especially accomodating of any handicapped people! If you have not ben. Go! You dont have to be rich to enjoy The Sport of Kings!

“The place has surely seen better days”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Looked somewhat run down and not very clean. I'm not in a hurry to go back and would not take out of town guests.

“It's not Vegas, but....”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

...it's not so bad. The restaurants are pretty good, although I've found that most of the fast-serve places are very slow. Love the live racing. The casino is just okay.
