I go up to Monmouth to visit friends at the track. We all have a great time and enjoy the off track betting. I go every year for the Haskell, what a wonderful event !!

Love this place. Fun for the degenerate gambler that wants to chance everything. Also great for me and my family. They have great picnic area and playground for kids. IF you are looking for a fun afternoon. Go here to bet on the ponies!!!

I didn't sit there. We were in the upper grandstand,which is shaded, on the finish line. Although the day was quite hot, we were cool, and the view was perfect.

Yes ...you can bring coolers. Not sure of the size limit...check the website or call. Ample picnic space with tables and benches....as well as a few grassy spots.
