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]
