You can come by the track any day you want but on the weekends you would see more people running there cars. Here is a map where the track is.

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...959,-73.895025

Directions: Two train to Gun Hill Road. Walk West on the South side of Gun Hill Road. After crossing the river, take the first set of stairs down to the park.

Driving. Bronx River Parkway to GunHill Road. Turn Right onto Gun hill, then right onto Olinville, Then right onto Bronx Blvd and the park is right there.

Is there an entrance that a wheelchair can use to get to the track area?

Nice job with the track! I lived three stops on the 2 train away until we moved two years ago (~60 miles north). Wish you guys had this up sooner. Im free for the whole summer so I might come down to check it out!

So I went to the track yesterday. The track layout is not bad, but line of sight around the track is bad for me in the wheelchair. I hope the Parks Commission comes on board for further development.
