Arlington Park a good neighbor to us

Success - Article sent! close

I have lived in the Northwest suburbs most of my life, and for almost 30 years in Rolling Meadows. Yet, I have never attended the 4th of July fireworks show at Arlington Park until this year. It was a spectacular show! And Arlington Park truly demonstrated professionalism in the way everything from food and beverage sales, parking and safety were handled. Thank you to Arlington Park for providing this great entertainment to us.

The park is a gem to our community that is often overlooked. We need to keep horse racing and Arlington Park as a thriving venue. They are a good neighbor to the Northwest suburbs. We all should support the track and their efforts to sustain in their changing business environment. Listen up, politicians and lawmakers -- we don't want to lose them.
