Rideau Carleton Raceway is a Canadian horse racing and gambling complex located at 4837 Albion Road in Ottawa, Ontario. The facility began operation in 1962 and specialises in standardbred harness racing.

In 2000, the venue introduced slot machines, under the authority of the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation which were expected to draw annual revenue of $13 million.[1] The site includes a restaurant and hosts musical performances.[2]

The Ottawa Swans of the Ontario Australian Football League play their home games in the space in the middle of the track (2008 to current).
