Canal Park is a baseball stadium located in Akron, Ohio, United States, that is the home of the Akron RubberDucks of the Eastern League. The team is a double-A minor-league affiliate of the Cleveland Indians. The stadium was designed by Populous, the same architectural firm that designed Jacobs Field, the Indians' stadium that opened three years earlier. The stadium takes its name from its location adjacent to the Ohio and Erie Canal, which runs behind the left-field wall.FeaturesThe stadium is designed as a single deck with the concourse at the top. All seats for RubberDucks games are sold for one price, regardless of number of rows from the field, except for right-field bleacher seating which is $1 less. Seats extend all the way from one foul pole to the other (farther than most other parks at this level), and most sections contain 20-25 rows, although they taper to as little as five in the corners.A series of 25 luxury boxes, and the press box, covers the concourse and the top few rows of seats from first base around to third base. The walkway down the right-field line is also covered, and contains a restaurant and the RubberDucks' team shop. A picnic berm in left field is available for pre-game rental by groups of 24 or more.During the 2006 Akron Aeros season, the team celebrated its 10th season in Canal Park with several events.

  • Really fun to watch games here. Small enough that it's not a hassle but big enough to feel like a real baseball game. Also beer is way too expensive with too little selection for a town with this many breweries. Definitely BYOB ;)
  • Canal Park is a great ballpark! There are no bad seats, it's clean, and easy to navigate. The staff makes sure everyone has a great time and they're very helpful. The fireworks are awesome too!
  • Love going to baseball games here. Tons of vendors. Food and drinks are good prices for a sporting event. You can see the game extremely well from virtually any seat. Fireworks on Fridays in the summer are amazing!
  • Canal Park is a great time! There's not a ton to do in Akron, but everyone who lives here should go to at least one Rubber Ducks game. The stadium is great and includes tons of food and drink options. The team is really fun to watch, and the crowd is engaged. It's a great, cheap way to have some fun in downtown Akron.
  • Biased, but one of the best pure baseball experiences around. Heart of downtown, great promotions and pretty good baseball. You'll gain a few pounds with the food choices.
