Northlands Park is the "Alberta A circuit" horse racing track at Northlands in Edmonton, Alberta. The horse racing season generally consists of a spring harness (Standardbred) meet from February/March, a Thoroughbred meet from May/June to September/October and a fall harness meet to mid-December. Northlands Park (formerly Northlands Spectrum) is the building name for the grandstand. There are three dining areas on the second floor. Colours is the main dining room overlooking the race track and has a seating capacity of 700. Uplinks Theatre is the simulcast restaurant area and features 6 projection televisions and up to 26 different simulcast race broadcasts from North American tracks and Sha Tin in Hong Kong. Playbook Lounge is open limited hours and is available for private functions, sports broadcast events (27 televisions) and private parties. There are two other concessions on the second floor - Rock's and The Deli - that are open during live horse racing.

The Slots at Northlands Park is the main-floor slot machine gaming room and features Las Vegas-style slot machines and VLTs and has two dining areas - the Slot Lounge and the Slot Grill.

The Paddock Theatre hosts the post position draw for the Canadian Derby, Northlands Park's largest and most prestigious annual thoroughbred race. Directly outside of the Paddock Theatre is the outdoor paddock area - featuring a barbecue concession window with beer service, paddock viewing terrace and the race commentary television broadcast room.

Northlands Park was also the corporate operating name for Edmonton Northlands. The name was adopted from the race track name in 1995 and changed to Northlands in 2006.
