Road and Lot Construction at Woodbine Racetrack

July 1, 2019

After a busy first year of construction which saw many significant changes to the site, the property development will continue throughout the second half of 2019 at Woodbine Racetrack.

The land that surrounds Woodbine Racetrack 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 will begin on new facilities, including a casino operated by Ontario Gaming GTA. To facilitate the large construction project, some accommodations will occur.

Please observe the following:

Jockey Club Road (Westbound exit and entry ramp from Rexdale Boulevard): Jockey Club Road is also known as the entrance and exit ramp that goes underneath Rexdale Blvd. to Grandstand Entrance (Ring Road). This ramp brings traffic travelling westbound on Rexdale Blvd. to Woodbine Racetrack and helps vehicles leave Woodbine Racetrack onto westbound Rexdale Blvd.

Traffic has been reduced to one lane in each direction. Please expect delays if using Jockey Club Road to enter or leave Woodbine Racetrack.

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.

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 and guests will not be able to exit to eastbound Rexdale Blvd. beyond Queen’s Plate Blvd. starting this August.

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.

Parking: Parking at Woodbine Racetrack for guests is located on the north-western portion of the property. All guests are encouraged to make use of parking available Lot A, B, C and D as depicted in the accompanying map.

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 2019.  Please expect delays if travelling on this route. To avoid the construction, please utilize alternative north-south roadways on the site such as the road between parking lots D and C.

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.

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.
