  • What a gem! This minor league park was intimate and allowed great seats for all. We were 4th row up just past 1st base, for $14/ticket. Wow! It was super fun!  more »

  • We spent last night at the Iowa City Cubs game and what an awesome spot! I've always enjoyed the minor league stadiums... they are more affordable and easy to navigate. The ticket prices we paid last night were very reasonable - $14 for seats down the third base line. There were plenty of food/beer/drink options throughout the stadium, but expect to pay the typical stadium (high) prices! There was plenty of parking nearby, we chose a lot that was about a 5 minute walk and only cost about $5 bucks. Throughout the game they have little events to shoot off t-shirts, hot dogs or do races on the field. There really isn't a bad spot in the stadium. We went to a night game (7PM start) and the sun was to our backs on the third-base side... just something to consider if the sun in your eyes for a few innings would bug you. If you are a baseball fan or just looking to take the family out for an event downtown, it's worth it!
  • Beautiful park in nice location. They need to improve the sounds at the park. Barely any music or pumping up of the fans at the park. They need a better speaker system.
  • I had a wonderful time today! I'm 70 and an 18 year cancer survivor. The lunch was delicious, I enjoyed the game, although I wish the Cubs world have won. Thank you so much for the amazing day. Bonnie Pahl
  • Great family atmosphere expect for the gift store. Enlarge the gift shop area or move it to a large tent. I wanted to buy more...but just could not move through the people and racks. Dangerous with children too!
  • Great park for the area. It sits by the Des Moines river so it can get cooler later in the evening. Food choice are good. Parking can be a little challenging though. Go have a great time.
