  • I don't know why it has taken me so long to come here but I was surprised at how pretty this ballpark was. The whole area is surrounded by trees so you kinda forget you're in the middle of Salt Lake City. The view of the Mountains from the seating was also amazing. Picnic areas are all over the park as well as a few activities for younger kids ("train rides", etc). The seats aren't very big but were pretty comfortable and have cup holders in front of you. I thought we were going to be in the sun all evening but I don't think one seat in the house was in the sun once the game started. Bathrooms were decent, but didn't expect much. Atmosphere is fun and definitely a place I'd come back to.
  • Smith's Ballpark provides a fantastic, All-American experience for the whole family. I took my two boys (6 and 4) to see a game. I expected them to get restless and leave by 5th inning, seeing as how it was already way past their bedtime. The boys enjoyed the play zone with swings and a play set, rode a train and marveled at the ability to mix flavors of shave ice. Food was expensive as expected, but the layout was intuitive, the facilities were clean and the staff was very friendly. Great experience!
  • I love this place! I've spent many summer nights at this ballpark watching the Salt Lake Bees play (as well as the University of Utah baseball team). The atmosphere is great, and you have all the normal things you would expect from a baseball park: hot dogs, burgers, peanuts, seeds, drinks, etc. The prices for the games are great! The only time I don't like going is when they have fireworks after the games; but, that's only because there are a ton of people that only show up for those games and not the other (i'm kind of a baseball fanatic anyway). And not to be forgotten is the view. This ballpark has one of the greatest views in all of baseball. You see the field, a beautiful row of trees just beyond the outfield fences, and then the Majestic Wasatch mountains to bring up the background. It's just amazing that you get that view AND a great baseball experience.
  • This ballpark Is a must for locals and tourists! Great seats everywhere and the outfield grass is a really fun time with the little ones. Always a good baseball game plus if you can get tickets for games with fireworks, it's the best show Utah!
  • Great park! Love the activities for kids. Bee's won!
