Accessible Seating for Guests with Disabilities
The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) strives to provide wheelchair and companion seating to our patrons with disabilities. Accessible seating is available in the Clubhouse and Grandstand of Belmont Park.
Gifting or reselling of seats to an individual who does not require a wheelchair accommodation will require that the user visit the NYRA Box Office prior to the race date to exchange their ticket. It is the responsibility of the ticket holder to communicate this policy to the ticket user. NYRA may exchange wheelchair accessible tickets for more appropriate seat locations, subject to availability. Orders are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis, subject to availability. NYRA reserves the right to take appropriate legal action against individuals who fraudulently obtain wheelchair & companion seats.
There are several umbrella tables available in the Clubhouse Paddock area with disabled accommodations. We have a designated area for wheelchairs on our apron. It is located trackside between the horse path and the Winner’s Circle.

Accessible Automatic Teller Machines (ATM’s) are located in the Clubhouse and the Grandstand.
Elevators for guest with disabilities are available in the Clubhouse Lobby (behind the escalators) and in the Grandstand (across from the Information and Binocular Rental Desk).
Emergency medical personnel and ambulances are at Belmont Park each racing day from 10:30 AM to the end of the Race Card. The First Aid Facility is located in the basement level across from the Film Theatre.
Automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are located at various locations throughout the grounds and designated medical personnel have been trained and certified to use them. Guests in need of medical assistance should notify Security Personnel and go to the nearest first-aid station. Roving medical personnel are also available throughout the facility.
All NYRA lots have Accessible parking spaces available for guests with disabilities. These spaces, including van-accessible spaces, are designated for vehicles displaying a current state-issued disability placard or license plate. Wheelchair accessible courtesy bus service is available. All parking spaces are available on a first-come first-serve basis after the parking lot opens for our guests. All spaces pay appropriate fees.
All public restrooms are accessible to our patrons with disabilities.
While pets are not allowed in Belmont Park, NYRA welcomes guests with disabilities who have a service animal. Patrons may contact Guest Services if any special assistance is needed.
