It features the "Pepsi Party Deck" over the right field wall. This area is available to rent by groups. Along the first base line is the "Budweiser Stables," where fans can order beer and watch a game from an area of picnic tables. Behind home plate and accessible from the stadium's main entrance, the "Kentucky Ale Taproom" restaurant caters to members and guests with passes. The third base line features a small but popular area for families to watch the games. This area includes a kids area with a playground, bouncer and obstacle course. The bleachers, behind left field, holds more fans. There are two videoboards and one manual out-of-town scoreboard. The ballpark contains 785 club seats and 24 luxury suites.The stadium's largest crowd to date came on June 6, 2006, when a standing-room-only crowd of over 9,300 was on hand to witness what the team dubbed "Rocket Relaunch" — Roger Clemens's first stop on his return to the Houston Astros.

  • We went to the Lexington Philharmonic the music of Harry Potter concert. The music was great! However, that was all that was great. There was a loud generator running throughout the concert, the hot dogs were the smallest most pathetic ball park hot dogs, and the buns were dried out. Finally the restroom situation. The only ones opened were the ones in the restaurant. I just gives thanks I went just before intermission as there were only 4 stalls available for all the ladies at this event. That was the most poor planning I've ever seen. However, mother nature made for a wonderful outdoor concert and you can't go wrong with Harry Potter.
  • Nice place for a family outting. I went for Red, White& Boom and it just rained. It would be nice if some arrangements were made for some type of protection from the rain. I don't see why they didn't just move Friday's show to Monday. It is great weather today. I am aggravated that I paid $40 to park and there were people who parked next door in the shopping center where signs are posted "no parking". I'm not sure who was responsible for that. I can say this is a great place to bring your kids to a baseball game.
  • This is a pretty ballpark. It's always a great time to get out and experience baseball. There isn't a bad seat in the park.
  • Very friendly service! Great staff, helped us in every way they could! The games are so much fun for the entire family young or old. They also have concerts that are amazing!
  • Saw a great concert there Labor Day weekend. It's called Red, White and Boom. It was a Booming good time.

Where to stay in Lexington

Downtown Lexington offers accommodations ranging from budget to luxury, but for easier access to the area's famous horse parks and farms, consider staying just north of the city proper. Many rustic bed and breakfasts on the edge of town offer guests a chance to stay at a farmhouse or log cabin. These properties provide not only every comfort of home, but also much more privacy than a downtown hotelĀ could offer. To avoid driving to Lexington's major urban attractions, consider a hotel near the city's convention center.
