In regular racing years, Saratoga Race Course offers both walking and tram tours, but because the 2020 meet opened without fans in attendance, we cannot confirm whether or not there will be tours this year. Call NYRA at 518-584-6200 for more information.
When fans are able to attend the races, they can choose from General Parking (which is free), Preferred Parking, Trackside Parking, and parking on private properties near the track.
