Norfolk's bid was rejected and the Expos eventually became the Washington Nationals.On March 30, 2007, the Washington Nationals played an exhibition game against the Baltimore Orioles at Harbor Park. The game was sold out two weeks in advance; attendance was 12,408.

  • Decent attraction. We only visited because the Orioles were in town. The O's are the Tides' MLB Team. It was great to purchase extremely affordable tickets to see my favorite MLB Team. Parking is nuts...  more »

  • Beautiful. Food was good. Amazing great fireworks. Throwing balls for a dollar. But for real what keeps bringing us back is Rip Tide. And that big blue butt. No butts abiut it. You know he's riptide, enough said. You could say a few words, but it's enough said. Riptide. Just riptide, just say Riptide. Like I said. Enough said. No butts about it.
  • Always a great time! Great selection of fluid and snacks for everyone except the health conscious. Lots of fun activities, interactive entertainment, and great seating!
  • Easy parking at good price..pretty good food. Easy exiting. All in all a very nice park
  • Great park!!! Parking has never been an issue. Plenty of foul balls... balls kept by the fans. It's an amazing time.
  • Evening games are the best. I sang "God Bless America at the bottom of the 7th Saturday night which was also Star Wars night! Entertaining between innings are too funny. Great Fireworks ended the night of course with music from Star Wars.
