  • Bringing baseball and history to life! The “bullpen” got its name right here! And Bull Durham was filmed here too. My son is lucky enough to play his college baseball games here. Go NCCU!  more »
  • I went to my first Durham Bulls game with my family. We had a great time at the game. The game was fun, stadium is very nice. There's food concessions everywhere, and the other fans were fun to be around. They have fun stuff to watch between innings. Their mascot is good too. A very positive experience for us all.
  • What a blast! What an amazing experience! Had such a great time! Stadium is beautiful, everyone is wonderful, staff is friendly, seats and areas were clean. Game was fun, seats were incredible, felt so close to the action. Even my teenager who hates going anywhere had a great time. Easy parking. Even concession pricing was bearable! Bring the whole family! We even witnessed a super sweet marriage proposal! It was just such a great day for family! Go Bulls!
  • Absolutely phenomenal experience. The stadium is gorgeous for it's age (built in 95). As Durham continues to grow, the epicenter is the ball park. Inside the park, you can get typical game day food, but also more local and exotic options. No shortage of micro brewery beers. No bad seats in the park. Offering covered and uncovered. There is a giant play area for kids in right field. Them games are a blast too. For minor league, that facility, quality of play, and entertainment is top notch. Also the best fireworks in the area hands down. Parking in the area is free after 5 (two decks close by, and a third in walking distance). Add to that how cheap tickets are, and it literally is the best bang for your buck, fun for the whole family!
  • I have never been so upset with a facility in my life, after the game time we rode the Elevator downstairs and my 3 year old son need to use the restroom and the lady at the desk downstairs by the the store told him he could not use it. As far as I had understood there was a law that you cannot deny a child or someone with diabetes to use a public restroom or the closest, This is really disappointing for a facility that we come to for 10 to 15 games a year. Not sure we will return after the way this lady acted tonight.
  • What a great facility for a small City team! Of course the Bulls are well-known, but they and their fans can take great pride while enjoying outstanding baseball. Excellent services from good/drink vendors to restrooms (and seating). Definitely go if you have the chance.
