video clip

With over 100 umbrella tables extending nearly the entire length of the stretch, this location is one of Monmouth’s most popular. Kids can play on the large playground while the adults throw hot dogs on the barbeque. Charcoal grills are allowed, however gas grills are not. Picnic tables in the general, public picnic area are available on a first-come, first-serve basis each day. Please note tents are not allowed in the public picnic area. The Monmouth Park picnic area is BYOB – no hard alcohol, no glass bottles. 


Attention Fans. Beginning Saturday, June 23, coolers or carry-in containers of any kind will only be permitted within the confines of the picnic area.  Additionally, patrons bringing such items will only be permitted to enter the track through the Picnic Area or Train admission gates. Coolers, carry-in containers and other items will be subject to search prior to entering the track.  For security reasons, unattended coolers, carry-in containers or similar items will not be allowed to reserve picnic tables. No patron under the age of 21 is permitted to possess or consume alcohol at any time.  Additionally, we are pursuing new policies to enhance effectiveness in this area, such as the wearing of wristbands to identify persons 21 or older on Haskell Day, and as otherwise appropriate.  We thank you for your continued cooperation.
