If you like betting on horses, this is place to go in Maryland. Recent renovations have greatly enhanced the experience for customers. A great way to spend the day if you prefer horse racing action instead of casino gambling.

As mentioned before. The is delicious, but the services are very slow at times. The alcohol drinks are weak to say the least. We still dine there anyway.

Just going to Laurel Park to watch the horses race is fun enough, without even betting! Lately they have made some incredible renovations inside as well as a new board in the middle of the track. The crowds are getting larger. The only thing they need to do now is fix the parking lot!

You can go for a short time or spend an extended amount of time depending on your schedule and how well you are doing at playing the ponies. Overall a... More

My daughter loves this place. She has been coming here since she was a year old. The playground was great but is even better now since it was just replaced. There are plenty of picnic table and grills available and paddle boats to rent. Want to fish? Get a license, required for adults, and you can catch a small perch,... More

Spending the day at the horse races is fun, especially if the weather is nice. Laurel Park has been renovated and is a very nice venue to spend the day betting on horses and having a few cocktails.
