There is also a You Tube called The Horses At Evergreen Park 2020 channel where entries, results, video, stories and photos will appear updated weekly through the racing season.

The race meet continues until Sunday, August 23.

A limited number of spectators are allowed as the race meet opens. Click on the banner above to order your free tickets online for the weekend races.

Race days are  Saturdays and Sundays between July 11 with one Friday on the schedule – July 31. All of the Saturday-Sunday races will have a 1:15 p.m. first post time while the July 31 post will be 5:15 p.m.

Also, with AHS Phase 2 protocols now in place Evergreen Park will be able to offer its facilities for weddings - both outdoor and inside. The Park has a variety of buildings able to support with ease the maximum attendance allowed by AHS.

Meeting rooms, again with a large-capacity availability, are also available for companies and others.

The Evergreen Park TARA Centre Kitchen, as restaurants around the city have opened, is now back to its normal outside and inside catering program. Anyone interested in having their event catered, whether it is at their building or the TARA Centre, can phone 780-532-3279 or email alana@evergreenpark.ca to order or go online here to place an order.

Other parts of the Park are also open including the archery range and horse club venues – all following AHS guidelines.

The Grande Sunset Theatre is offering weekend outdoor movies from the TARA Centre Parking Lot A all summer long. A permanent 40-foot screen was erected in the lot and up to 700 vehicles can be accommodated.

The slot machines, VLTs and off track betting kiosks are all open at the Evergreen Park Casino.

And the Casino Restaurant as well as the Pines Family Restaurant are welcoming customers as well at JDA Raceway.

There are eight screens showing races from across North America, two betting kiosks and race track programs for those who like to play the ponies

Temperature checks are in effect and face masks will be mandatory for all Casino slot/VLT customers. Hand sanitizers are available at the entrance/exit. All Alberta Health Services safety protocols are in place in both the Casino and restaurants. Social distancing is in effect in the Casino and restaurants (masks not mandatory) so all guests can feel safe when they play the slots or sit in the restaurants and enjoy a meal.
