Durham Bulls Athletic Park, Durham

4.8
The clean and modern ballpark,Durham Bulls Athletic Park, is the home of the minor league Durham Bulls, the inspiration for the romantic comedy film, "Bull Durham." The 1988 movie actually predates the 10,000-seat brick park, which was built in 1995. When you take in a game here, look out for the giant bull standing above the Blue Monster--the 9.5 m (32 ft) left-field wall that resembles the Green Monster in Boston's Fenway Park. The organization offers all kinds of promotions to draw fans, so see what's on the schedule for your visit.

  • Excellent minor league ballpark in the middle of all the action. Well maintained and a good variety of food choices. You will be close to the action here. Many dining options nearby and good parking.  more »
  • Went to a game last year. It's right beside the Tobacco campus, which is full of shopping, restaurants and a flurry of activity. There's a big deck right there, so you can easily park and head to a re...  more »

  • Cheap tickets, reasonably priced food and beers, and a well taken care of stadium that is easily walkable. What's not to love? I've been to two games here and thoroughly enjoyed myself both times. There is a wide variety of food and drink available for the whole family, the stadium is easy to get around, the staff is friendly, and there are seats for every budget. It's a fun place to spend an afternoon with friends or family.
  • Great arena, everything is brand new and nice, we loved it at the opening game. I wish they had a better concession operation flow though; because those lines at the food stands are incredibly long and not moving nearly as fast as they should. You end up spending half of the game in the line for food, which is okay if the game is bad. But if the game is good, then it's a shame😂 In general, the whole area around the Park is just beautiful. It's newly renovated factory, that is now a business and dining center of the city.
  • Great park, fun workers, lots to keep people entertained. Please turn up the speakers if possible, we were in right field and barely heard what was announced, good time though for the price! Go on Thursday! "Affordabull Thursdays" when the food is cheaper!
  • We've had a mini plan of 4 tickets since the new park opened.. Can't wait for the opening of the new season. BIG FUN FOR ALL!
  • Great facility, awesome location, and inexpensive tickets.  What more can you ask for?  Some reviews mention too much sun, but once you've visited the first time, you realize that you should sit home - 1st line for afternoon games and home - 3rd line for evening games if you want to avoid the sun.  That's all there is to it. The concession prices are also reasonable for a ball park.  Parking is always an issue at crowded game, so you're better off using the pay lot on the third base line side, it's only a few dollars and well worth it not to have to walk in from the outdoor lots up the street.
