Wentworth Park is a multi-purpose sporting facility in the Sydney suburb of Glebe in New South Wales, Australia. Over the years, the facility has been used for various sports including soccer, rugby union, rugby league, greyhound racing, and speedway. Wentworth Park is located two kilometres (one mile) from the Sydney central business district.


Greyhound racing is conducted at Wentworth Park on Wednesday and Saturday nights as well as some special events. Greyhound races are conducted over 520 and 720 metres (1,706 and 2,362 ft). The track is a sand surface having been converted from grass in the 1990s. Hurdle racing was a feature of Wentworth Park until the early 1980s. It fell away and annual events were held in December for a number of years until the mid-1990s.


The nearby University of Technology, Sydney and other educational facilities regularly hold student examinations within two levels of the grandstand.
Tenants to the Wentworth Park complex include Language Testing Consultants (LTC), the Academy of Interactive Entertainment (AIE), the Greyhound Breeders, Owners and Trainers Association (GBOTA) and Ladbrokes.


The infield oval is used by local schools as well other community sporting groups for sporting events.

  • What a great night out. Not crowded, plenty of room for kids to muck around. IMO the best chicken parm in Sydney is had at the bistro here. Staff are friendly and drinks are genuine 1990s prices. If you cant have fun here, you don't have a pulse.
  • I wish I could give zero stars. No one should support this level of animal cruelty :(
