Great Next Generation Ballpark

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Kevinmcc on May 8, 2008

Citizens Bank Ballpark is a great fan friendly aesthetically pleasing ballpark. Driving up to the ballpark you a greeted by a beautiful brick facade around the entire stadium. Inside the stadium has a concourse where you can walk around the entire perimeter of the ballpark with sight lines along the whole walk. This provides plently of great vantage points for the standing room only tickets sold at aold out games. In Centerfield you can stand right over the bullpens and be literally 50 feet from the pitchers warming up in the pen.

There are a couple sit down type cafe in the outfield. There are the normal hotdog/pretzel/nachos stand, but there are also Peace of Pizza stands and a few sandwish shops. Tony Luke's, a popular cheesesteak vendor is also included in Centerfield.

There are two nice fan shops included inside the stadium as well. You can get personalized Jerseys made on the spot. There is also a Build your Phanatic (the Phillies mascot) shop in the theme of the Build a Bear stores.

There is nothing better than a beautiful night or afternoon spent at a comfortable ballpark. It is easy to have one of those great experiences here. I am not a Phillies fan but I can say that when they are winning the Phils fans are enthusiastic which creates a fun atmosphere. Fit a trip down to the Ballpark into your schedule.

Plenty of parking is available for $11. The Broad Street Subway line leaving from City Hall also is a great way to get to the game. Get off the train at Pattison and you are one block away from the stadium
