Really love to watch the horses run but Turf Paradise needs to update their decor. Feel like I'm in the 70s in this place.

Lots of occasions to meet and bet on horses for. They even do things for families occasionally. Seeing the horses race live you just cant do it anywhere else in the city.

This is our Birthday Place to go! You can bet $2, or as much as you want and have a great day here. Food was very good here a couple of years ago, not so much now. Sandwiches are the best value. Desserts, not bad.
