Parking is free and ample.  Valet parking is not available.  Handicap parking spaces are marked right in front.  Admission is free.  Programs are free, at least they were for me, but they are priced on the front cover for a dollar each;  get 'em at the betting windows.  You are behind the bleacher seating when you enter.  A small bar is on your left, and the mutuel windows are on the right.   The bar sells beer and hard liquor.  To get to two water fountains, walk past the front wall as far as you can go.  Then, make a left, and walk as far as you can go; the water fountains will be on your left.   Restrooms are outside the fronton, close by in a trailer situation.  Two are available, and each is available for men and women.  If a way exists to turn on the light in those two johns, I could not find it; if the lighting was automatic like on an airplane john, that was not working in both restrooms.   Two mutuel windows sell and cash tickets.  Readers, please be gentle with the two mutuel tellers - this apparently is on-the-job training.  Be patient !   Win, place, show, quinella, and trifecta betting is available.  Before the game, only win odds are posted.  Interestingly, the players shower after the performance in a trailer-like facility, located outside the fronton.  That facility has several showers.  Players can be seen, outdoors wrapped in towels, entering and leaving the shower facility.  Such is the life of a pelotari - sacrificing for the sport.
