Suffolk Downs Announces New Summer and Fall Activities at the Track

The HYM Investment Group LLC (HYM), the firm leading the redevelopment of Suffolk Downs, announced an exciting line-up of activities taking place at The Track at Suffolk Downs throughout the summer and fall months. From kid-friendly “Tracktivities” to the electronic dance music festival Breakaway, there will be something for everyone to enjoy at The Track.

Over the past several years, HYM has hosted numerous community-centered events at The Track, as part of the company’s commitment to creatively activating the site throughout the multi-phased build-out of Suffolk Downs. Since 2021, HYM has also opened The Track to the public from dawn to dusk daily for residents and visitors looking to walk, run and play. The Dog Park at Suffolk Downs, located directly adjacent to The Track, opened last year and is available for residents, visitors and their four-legged friends to enjoy.

“Suffolk Downs will be a place that brings people together and creates community, “ said Thomas N. O’Brien, Managing Partner and Chief Executive Officer of HYM. “The ongoing events and activities taking place at The Track are an integral component of bringing our vision for an accessible, vibrant site to life.”

Upcoming activities for residents and visitors to look forward to at The Track include:
