  • Not good in winter. No outhouses, parking lot terrible with snow, Locals complain for unknown reasons.. seemingly because you're parked( in a public park during open hours. And know, I'm not even on face recognition terms( never mind name basis) with them.
  • Had a fun time with brew fest this year as well as a united way event. The staff was all really nice, everything was clean. Food was inexpensive and yummy for ballpark food.
  • Great local ball park. Stand seating is constructed much like old world amphitheaters. If you get too hot, go down to concession area, very cool and a nice breeze even on non windy days. Amazing.
  • fireworks show is pretty awesome. but parking is horrendous
  • An historic stadium, great venue for baseball, unobstructed seating. Silver Knights baseball is fun and pretty darn Good!
