The directions for getting to the Santa Anita Park raceway, which is located at 285 West Huntington Drive in Arcadia, California, are slightly different for each of the three main entrance gates. As the race track is located near the 210 Freeway, the easiest way to get there is to take the freeway and then get off at the appropriate exit for the desired gate.
For those wishing to enter the raceway through Gate 8, known as the Horseman's Entrance, exit the 210 Freeway on Baldwin Avenue, as Gate 8 is located directly on this street. This entrance is best for those individuals with General Admission tickets.
To reach either Gate 5 or Gate 6, get off the freeway at the Santa Anita Avenue exit. For Gate 5, which is located on Huntington Drive, follow Santa Anita Avenue to Huntington Drive. For Gate 6, continue to follow Huntington Drive, veer on to Colorado Place and then turn left into Gate 6. Gate 5 is the best entrance for the Club House Admission, while Gate 6 is best for the Infield.
Regular and handicapped parking spaces are available at all three gates. In addition, valet parking is also available for Club House Admission at Gate 5.
