First Tennessee Park, Nashville

(4.5/5 based on 80 reviews on the web)
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.

  • We came here with a Bachelorette party and had so much fun! Happy Hour was great and we loved all the games you can play. There is something for everyone even if your not a baseball fan!  more »
  • Loved going to the Sounds game with friends. The park was kept very clean and staff was friendly. Gift shop had a good selection and the line to get in was quick. Great game as well!  more »
  • The new Sounds baseball park is really nice. There is so much to do, even if you don't watch the ballgame. The food in the Band Box concession stand is much different and better than your average ball...  more »

  • Very nice ballpark for a minor league team. Various food options including hot chicken. Upstairs club level is nice too. Lots of extra activities like bean bag toss and mini golf. Kids activities. I'd love to see them expand the seating all the way around like a major league park. Downtown view is nice. Drinks are pricey but expected at a ballpark.
  • Went to a Sounds game here last June and was really impressed with the ballpark. The ballpark has a nice and cozy feel and I had a great view of the field. In fact due to the size of the ballpark I don't think there is a bad view from anywhere.
  • This is conveniently located to downtown and Germantown and is a nice, new facility. There are lots of activities located within the park such as bean bag toss and ping pong tables, as well as a full service bar with TVs. I'm not sure how parking is, as I've always walked to this venue. Prices on concessions and drinks seem reasonable for a ballpark.
  • Sounds game in Gremantown is Awsome! New Ballpark is what us locals have wanted for so long! Great food, perfect ticket prices, easy parking, Awsome views and Incredible Baseball! If you havent been yet put it on you liat for 2017!
  • First off this is a great venue to watch a ballgame. Beautiful stadium and view of Downtown Nashville. I loved the huge guitar scoreboard. The traffic getting to the stadium was terrible. Parking was too high at $10 to park and have to walk as far as I did. Employees weren't friendly at all. Had a few drunk bonehead fans thinking they were part of the ballgame yelling obscenities that I could do without but I think that is just a Tennessee thing that a few coming down from the hills and never been to an organized baseball game do as they do that in Chattanooga too.
