Reviewed May 25, 2013

We travelled to Topeka specifically for the drags. We were not disappointed. The amenities were very clean for such an event.

“This is a nice Park”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

This park is located just off 470. We enjoyed the picnic area and pool. They also have a BMX track and Community Center in the park. The neighborhood around park was good.The staff at pool was very nice and helpful. Parking was ok. Free lot.

Sitting in the stands and your pant legs blow as the cars go down the 1/4 mile track. Bring ear plugs.

“Deaf & Happy”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

If you think it sucks living in the Wheat State, you need to visit the NHRA Summer Nationals in Topeka next year. It happens every year the week before Memorial weekend. It is the loudest, most exhilerating event I have ever attended. The big boys go over 300 mph in a quarter mile. You can go down into the Pits and see the cars up close and feel the rumble as they fire them up. (Top Fuel will make any grown man cry)
