From 1935 to 2010 Wonderland Greyhound Park flourished as a premier destination for greyhound racing. In the over 75 years of operation Wonderland Greyhound Park serviced and catered to a large number of greyhound patrons.
Wonderland Greyhound Park closed it's doors on August 19th, 2010. The event in itself was rather uneventful. There were no press conferences held or historic photos rolled out. The closure came about as a result of the passing of the "Massachusetts Greyhound Protection Act" which is a Massachusetts statute that gradually eliminated commercial dog racing by 2010. The steep fines imposed by the government were motivation enough to prompt the closure of Wonderland Greyhound Park. All greyhound parks in the state of Massachusetts are now closed as a result of this act. For more information about the history of Wonderland Greyhound Park we suggest visiting here.
