Melaleuca Field, Idaho Falls

#6 of 7 in Things to do in Idaho Falls
Melaleuca Field is a stadium in Idaho Falls, Idaho. It is primarily used for baseball, and is the home field of the Idaho Falls Chukars minor league baseball team. It was built during the Pioneer League 2006-07 offseason. American Legion and local high school games are also played at the field.By 2004, the old stadium that used to sit on the same lot, McDermott Field, was outdated, deteriorating, and viewed as an unsuitable baseball venue. In May of that year, the Chukars approached the City of Idaho Falls about a major renovation; the estimated cost was $3.35 million. After the city agreed to allocate $2 million toward the project, the Chukars started a "Step Up To The Plate" fundraising campaign to come up with the remaining $1.35 million. Despite a fundraising campaign launched by the city of Idaho Falls, a sharp rise in anticipated construction costs resulted in a budget shortfall of half a million dollars. Idaho Falls multi-level marketing company Melaleuca donated $600,000 to complete the construction and the stadium was renamed Melaleuca Field on June 22, 2007.The old McDermott Field stadium was torn down on October 30, 2006, and the new Melaleuca Field stadium was dedicated on June 22, 2007. The new stadium includes a seating capacity of 3,400, eight luxury boxes, two large concession booths, and a sponsored hot tub on the right field line.FeaturesThe grandstand includes 1,200 box seats, 1,459 bench seats with backs, eight custom suites with balcony seating, a large press box, two large concession booths, a souvenir shop and various offices. The playing surface is natural grass (Kentucky bluegrass).

    The ballpark is kept very clean. The seating is comfortable and you are close to the game. There are many selections at the food stands.  more »

    A very family oriented environment and some decent baseball too. Concessions are very reasonably priced and the line aren't very long.  more »

    We viewed the recent solar eclipse from the bleachers of Melaleuca Field and this stadium is quite comfortable. I would imagine watching a baseball game at this field would be equally enjoyable. Altho...  more »

    Serene place to find rocks. Medium sized play structure, fun baseball games, great place for children

    Great family place. If that game is not entertaining then they have games for the crowd every 10 minutes or so.
