Tourist Spot Arena / Stadium
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.

  • Great for a good time for friends and family of all ages. You want be dissatisfied especially for the price  more »
  • I used to love this park but I feel they have moved so far from the family experience to making as much money as they can its not longer a good family activity. I know everything is expensive at sport...  more »
  • We had a very relaxing and fun time at the Ball game. Wool E. was very entertaining too! Looking around at the seating, it didn't look like any of the seats had a bad view.  more »

  • Loved my first Bulls game experience! I went on a Thursday night when they have $1 concessions (limited to hot dogs, popcorn, & soda) but I loved not breaking the bank to have a ballpark meal. The selection of local beers was awesome too. Stadium was clean and very nice. Can't wait to come back again and again.
  • I had a really great time here. There was a pretty good variety of food, that was very tasty. The game itself was pretty good. In between most innings there was also some kind of entertainment that was pretty entertaining. At the end of the game there was one of the best fireworks shows that I have ever seen. I was pleasantly surprised. Im not a big baseball fan but I would most definitely go to another game.
  • Great atmosphere. Facilities are clean and plentiful. The staff is always helpful when we have questions. My family loves the fireworks on Fridays. I'd give 5 stars if they had more toddler friendly food and drinks.
  • The park is actually a great place to just go hang out. Some tickets are "standing room only" which equates to paying a cover charge at a bar (and there are quite a few bars inside the park) and just spending time with friends outdoors. OH and did I mention, there's a baseball game going on?
  • Lots of history here, certainly a good team this year. Tickets are reasonably priced for a good night out. Plenty to eat in the surrounding area as well. Concessions are a bit pricy and the crowd is more relaxed than some other stadiums I've been too. But it's a great game, great team, makes for a good night.
