First Tennessee Park is a minor league baseball park in downtown Nashville, Tennessee. The home of the Triple-A Nashville Sounds of the Pacific Coast League (PCL), it opened on April 17, 2015, and can seat up to 10,000 people. It replaced the Sounds' former home, Herschel Greer Stadium, where the team played from its founding in 1978 until 2014.The park was built on the site of the former Sulphur Dell, a minor league ballpark in use from 1870 to 1963. It is located between Third and Fifth Avenues on the east and west (home plate, the pitcher's mound, and second base are directly in line with Fourth Avenue to the stadium's north and south), and between Junior Gilliam Way and Harrison Street on the north and south. It is near Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park and is adjacent to the future location of a new Tennessee State Museum. The Nashville skyline can be seen from the stadium to the south.The design of the park incorporates Nashville's musical and baseball heritage and the use of imagery inspired by country music, Sulphur Dell, and Nashville's former baseball players and teams. Its most distinctive feature is its guitar-shaped scoreboard—a successor to the original guitar scoreboard at Greer Stadium. The ballpark's wide concourse wraps entirely around the stadium and provides 360-degree views of the field. Once the greenway section is completed, it will connect with two other greenways in the city.

  • Developers did a great job. Great view of downtown and train bridge. Facilities are great. Good vendors. Decent food. Great upgrade from Greer
  • Do not eat any meals there. I got a chicken sandwich from the Band box & it was awful. Hard to eat. To hard & crunchy. Didn't taste good. Spent 17.00 & couldn't even eat it. Eat elsewhere. Just buy snacks & drinks.
  • State of the Art. Excellent place to gather with family and friends. Walking distance of so much to do and see in beautiful Nashville. Food was good. So clean!! Go! And Enjoy!. Oh... The Sounds won and the baseball game was enjoyable as well ;)
  • Enjoyed my trip more this year than in years past. They are doing a better job entertaining the fans. Keep up the good work Sounds!
  • Nice park. Ample parking. Lots of activities. Good seating. Ticket pricing isnt bad. Only down side are the concessions, very expensive for drinks/food. However the gift shop pricing isnt terrible.

Where to stay in Nashville

Stay in downtown, midtown, the west end, or near Vanderbilt to be at the center of it all in Nashville. You'll find plenty of boutique hotels and major chains in all of these areas, which give you great access to the downtown music scene and beyond. While you can find a bit of everything in downtown Nashville, from larger hotels to apartment rentals, keep in mind that more affordable, and often quainter, options are located further from Broadway. Travelers looking to spend most of their time at the Grand Ole Opry should consider accommodations in the Opryland or Music Valley area near the airport.
