The Washington Park Velodrome opened in 1927 and is the oldest operating velodrome in the country. Kenosha’s 333 meter track with 28 degree banked corners has produced many National, Olympic and World Champions over the years. In 2015 the velodrome had a much needed renovation, changing the surface to concrete and increasing the corner banking.
