Arlington Park for sale, likely to be redeveloped.

Arlington Park is up for sale, and according to this report from the Chicago Tribune, the 326-acre horse track site is headed towards redevelopment.  And the mayor of Arlington Heights is already talking about a “mixed-use or entertainment development” in its place.

So — what’s a good replacement?  Arlington Park has decent parking, is easily reached by car, and ridiculously accessible by Metra with its own dedicated stop.  I’d love to see a smaller outdoor concert venue with restaurants, bars, and shopping.  A man can dream, can’t he?  — [eric]
