Race Track Community Workshop


Share this post!


Learn how this barren site once home to horse racing decades ago could be transformed into a recreational area. Attend a community workshop to express interest in various recreational amenities that might be offered at the site.

The workshop will be held Dec. 3, from 9 a.m. to noon in the Student Center of Bowie State University.

Bowie area residents and Bowie State University students, faculty, and staff are invited to share their input on the future of the 150+ acre property.


Anyone with an interest in the community, the BSU campus, or in recreational offerings in the area is encouraged to complete a 10-question survey. The survey will remain open until Dec. 20. Complete the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/brtp_questionnaire

The survey was developed by the Bowie Race Track Task Force, which was appointed by the Bowie City Council. The Task Force will be responsible for developing a prioritized list of desired recreational uses and associated space needs.

The race track was the scene of thoroughbred horse racing from 1914 to 1985 and served as a training facility for other tracks in Maryland after racing ceased there. To view photos of the old race track, visit the online collection of the City of Bowie Museums.
