We went to Laurel Park during one of the Festivals held there

During the Bourbon and Brew festival, there was plenty to keep you busy. They had a wagering 101 class, private betting windows, food trucks, and racing. Everyone should walk down to the paddock and visit the horse, they are beautiful animals. The facility was clean and kept up, the restrooms were clean and someone was always checking on them. We would go back again.
A lot of fun for a nongambler

I love horses. When I was young I used to volunteer at a different race track. Swampy ground lies on two sides of this track. On many mornings a light ground fog is visible. It seems like the horses are galloping across clouds. I walk in off street and watch the horses exercise. I don't believe in gambling but I might gamble a little if I thought we were about to lose this pretty track. During racing season there is a small fee for parking.

It's a nice place for adults if you enjoy a race track atmosphere. It is not a place for children UNLESS they are having a "family day" event. We attended the family day there and it was really nice. Clowns, balloons, food, singing, games, etc. There are a lot of different kinds of people there, so watch your surroundings....there are live races going on and that was kinda cool. The children were allowed to visit the horses and talk to the jockeys.

Homeless people sleeping everywhere within the park! Very scary looking. Not somewhere I would want to take my family!
Two Prong Celebration
Jul 11, 2013 by: 64TonyTee from New York City, New York
This was a very special July 4th holiday. I am a USARMY (sp4) Honorably Discharged Veteran and this is always a special holiday for us vets. But as a senior citizen I was also celebrating the one (1) year of reuniting with my JR High School sweetheart. Our First prom date, she was 14 and I was 15. We sat by Laurel Lake in MD and watched fire works on a blanket. We kissed at times and it caused the "SMART PHONE" generation be so focused on us that the image of us kissing by now are probably out there in cyber space.We really gave them a show at times. Sometimes hotter than the fireworks being displayed so brilliantly on the Laurel Lake. I shall never forget this 4th of July celebrating my wonderful country and my first LOVE.
