We come here on the Thursday dollars day. It works well for my family. We love watching the horses out front before walking to the track. We also like the fact that we can make a 2 dollar bet. Keep up the good work. It's a clean fun day out.

Thousands of booths taking up the entire park plan to spend the day and bring your walking shoes. Food courts and places to rest inside and out. Be prepared for large crowds but a great place to pick up some early Christmas gifts

My daughter and I attended Corgies and Cupcakes. It was very very crowded and hard to move around. There is only one elevator location and it had a line to use it. I would like to revisit during a non-event time to re-evaluate but not ever going back during special events!

We have been coming to Canterbury Park for a number of years and love the Friday Night Happy hour. It is good, cheap entertainment. We will keep coming back.
