Road and Lot Construction at Woodbine Racetrack

March 13, 2020

The exciting changes continue at Woodbine Racetrack! After a busy start, which saw many significant changes to the site, the property development will continue throughout 2020 at Woodbine Racetrack (Woodbine).

The land that surrounds Woodbine will continue to transform as part of a master plan to create an exhilarating place to live, work, and play in addition to the ultimate destination for horse racing and gaming.

After receiving approval to expand gaming in May 2018, construction has begun on new facilities, including a casino resort operated by Ontario Gaming GTA. To facilitate the large construction project, some accommodations will occur that are anticipated to be present through May 2020.

Please observe the following:

Parking: Free parking is available at Woodbine Racetrack for guests located on the north-western portion of the property. Parking in Lots C and D will be disrupted to varying degrees until approximately July 2020. Throughout construction, Lot A is expected to be fully operational with only minor impacts for Lot B, while Lots C and D will be split with a construction zone dividing the northern and southern halves of each Lot. Guests are asked to observe all signage to best avoid construction and to safely journey from the parking lot to the grandstand.

Grandstand Entrance Road (Ring Road): Grandstand Entrance Rd. is a four-lane road that runs both north and south as well as east and west on the eastern portion of the Woodbine Racetrack property.

As part of the construction project, some limited disruptions may occur on Grandstand Entrance Rd. north of parking Lot C. Please follow the posted instructions or those provided by site personnel to navigate your vehicle to the parking lots.

Additionally, Grandstand Entrance Rd. is closed in all directions from east of Queen’s Plate Blvd. to just north of the three-way-stop at Stable Road adjacent to Highway 27. Traffic will not be permitted to travel between these two spots on Grandstand Entrance Rd.

Guests are encouraged to access the Racetrack and Casino from Rexdale Blvd. as there will be no northbound access on Grandstand Entrance Rd. beyond the Stable Rd. intersection.

Entrance from eastbound Rexdale Boulevard: Construction will reduce the entrance from eastbound Rexdale Boulevard to two lanes.

Roadway between Parking Lots B and C: The north-south roadway that runs between parking Lots B and C will be temporarily closed. To avoid the construction, please use Grandstand Entrance Rd. west of parking lot B.

Queen’s Plate Blvd: Queen’s Plate Blvd. is a four-lane road that runs north and south from Grandstand Entrance Rd.

Queen’s Plate Blvd. will have limited access intermittently throughout 2020.  Please expect delays if travelling on this route. To avoid the construction, please use Grandstand Entrance Rd. west of parking lot B.

Westbound exit and entry ramp from westbound Rexdale Boulevard (Jockey Club Road): The ramp that brings traffic travelling westbound on Rexdale Blvd. to Woodbine Racetrack and helps vehicles leave Woodbine Racetrack onto westbound Rexdale Blvd has been reduced to one lane in each direction. Please expect delays if using Jockey Club Road to enter or leave Woodbine Racetrack.

Valet Parking: A valet parking service was previously located on the eastern portion of the property adjacent to Highway 27. Moving forward, valet parking will be in Lot A, with guest drop-off at the West Entrance at Gate 10. Some construction will occur near the valet during spring 2020.

Woodbine would like to thank all guests for their patience as we continue build ultimate destination for horse racing and gaming.

Woodbine Entertainment apologizes for any inconvenience caused by the construction and thanks all of our guests for their patience while the site transforms into the future urban heart of northwest Toronto.
