Richmond Park
384 Lower Queen Street

If you know where the race course (A & P Showgrounds) in Lower Queen Street is, head to the race course. If the race course is on your right, enter the gate past the main gates (by the Vortex Wind Karting sign). If the race course is on your left and you can see the race track, then you have gone too far and go back to the entrance past the main gate.
