Entertainment and History in the Market Area

The Hialeah Park Racetrack (also called Miami Jockey Club and Hialeah Park) is a United States National Historic Place. It is also an official Audubon Bird Sanctuary, brining tourist dollars from those who visit the hundreds of flamingos in the infield.

Horse racing within the park a few times between 2001 and 2010, but resumed in December 2014, in time for the winter tourist season.

Other events include big-name boxing, casino activities with almost 1,000 slot machines and other games, famous entertainers, and big screen simulcasts of horse racing from other cities.

The lake in the park includes many islands that are home to several flocks of up to 300 pink flamingos each.

Hialeah racing track was built in 1922 to open in 1925 with an architectural style known as Mediterranean. The landscaping was salted with pink flamingos from Cuba and South America that still draw visitors to an official U.S. Sanctuary for the American Flamingo, according to the National Audubon Society. The first commercial Jai Alai court in America, a dance hall, and a roller coaster were all located here as well.

Early aviation genius Glenn Curtis helped to found Hialeah Race Track and Jockey Club. His name became famous is Dayton, Ohio as Curtis-Wright projects began to flourish on and around what became Wright Patterson Air Force Base and the National Aviation Heritage Trail.
