We went to Monmouth Park on Mother's Day. We had a blast! Packed a picnic lunch and cocktails. Good food, good friends and lots of laughs what more could you ask for.?!?! Even through the pouring rain, and sitting on the tables to avoid getting soaked we had fun.

what a shame. the management should be embarrassed. On a special day like Mother's Day you should have anticipated the crowd and had enough help on hand. Went to have a nice day with the Family... Waited on line for an Over Priced and Cold Pretzel for my grandkids..... 45 minutes. that's right 45 minutes. And at $4.00 a pretzel....... More

The best of two worlds. Monmouth Park Racetrack is always having a Wine Tasting or Food Trucks Event. Take advantage of it. It's only a couple of dollars to get into the park and you can stay all day. But get there early because the place gets packed fast. Bring a chair and have a picnic. You can also bet... More

Monmouth Park has the most beautiful paddock area. It is a fun place to enjoy the day with family and friends. Facilities are clean and an asset to the Borough of Oceanport.

Monmouth Park is beautiful, has public transportation from Penn Station, and has the best paddock in the world! You can stand closer to the famous superstar horses than you can at any other paddock I've gone to. I saw American Pharoah there, Looking at Lucky, Nyquist: so many superstar horses. Haskell Day is perhaps my favorite day of going to... More

Been coming here since the early 80's. Great racetrack, clean and roomy. Enjoy new changes, sad there are less racing days. Always a collection of the best horses, trainers and jockeys. Hope this place survives for a hundred more years!

My husband and I spent the afternoon at Monmouth Racetrack. It's a fun place, clean and always has a family atmosphere. There's a few restaurants inside ranging from food stands to a sit down restaurant. I enjoy visiting the paddock and watching the horses getting ready to race. The racetrack is near the beach so there's usually a nice breeze... More
