The Milnerton Racecourse Section of the Table Bay Nature Reserve (TBNR: MR) is situated to the east of the residential development known as Royal Ascot in Milnerton. To the east of Milnerton Racecourse are the Gold Circle stables and horse training facilities, and beyond this the semi-industrial area of Montague Gardens.
Milnerton Racecourse is approximately 17.6ha in size and is divided into two portions, a northern area and a larger southern area.
