It is always a good time at the race track at Canterbury Park! It is a very family friendly place and kids can pet the horses as well. You can make cheap bets or pony up (no pun intended). It is cheap to get in and have a great afternoon with friends or family! It is very economical if you are on a budget to come and see the horses race... this track is not meant for very serious horse bidders and fans.. it is more fun than anything. The employees are always nice and accommodating as well. Definitely recommend coming here for an afternoon in the summer!

The quality of horses is not the best. The ambiance is good and if you are bored with the track there is a casino on site. It is a good place for a relaxing afternoon. However, I do not believe serious hourse racing fans will be very satisfied.

I love going here at least twice a summer. My kids love getting hot dogs and making $1.00 horse bets. They can pet horses, play at a large park, stroll through the greenery, listen to a band or watch wiener dog races. It's fun for all. One event that is great for adults is beer tasting night. There is also poker etc. bu we don't do that.

This is a wonderful find for adults and kids! Especially those who love horses! Family friendly! Live music on night racing. Great place for kids to see a live band. Fun to watch horses and "vote" on your horse and cheer them on!!! Can't say enough a great family evening!

I thought it was about bookies and bets, but it's much more. You can bring your kids and eat Fair food, or you can get a restaurant table where the waitress will save you the trouble of getting out of your seat to place your bets.
