The track boasts an assortment of horse barns and smaller buildings to cater for both the animals and their owners, as well as the large crowds which these racing events draw in. MetraPark is located in the Billings city limits along the Yellowstone River and it belongs to the Yellowstone County of Montana.
MetraPark is situated roughly one mile from downtown Billings and is only about one and a half miles from Logan Airport.

There is a 10,000 seat arena and a 6,500 seat grandstand while two heated and air conditioned exhibit buildings provide a comfortable location for a number of events. The half-mile track used for horse racing is also used for motor sports such as monster-truck rallies so there is seldom a dull moment at MetraPark. The rest of the facility enjoys landscaped parks and lighted parking areas which add a lovely finishing touch to the facility.
