We enjoyed seeing the a's play against the orioles. Tickets were very reasonable. We didn't like seeing Jason hammel getting shelled and watching the a's lose.

The thing I like about the stadium is watching the Oakland As playing baseball; its lots of fun. The thing I do not like about the stadium is the stadium. Its old; and even the Westside Club which used to be a good experience has changed due to a new vendor taking over the food and beverage service. The Westside... More

The stadium is old and it is crappy. The BART does drop you off at the stadium but it is a hike to the front of the stadium. Believe me on this, you want to go here for the game and the fans. Usually I would avoid the bleacher seats, but for some reason I decided to try them. I... More

Perhaps the only justification for the Coliseum's all around terribleness is that it doubles as a football field during the fall (it's the only field left in the U.S. that does so professionally). As a result there is a whole lot of foul territory, not much to do/see on the concourse and overall, a pretty ugly stadium. Plus Mt. Davis,... More

I have had the joy of visiting baseball stadiums and parks around the nation. I think I have seen about 2/3 of them. The Oakland coliseum is one of the worst, and its made worse by the fact that across the bay, the SF AT&T Park is one of the best! If you buy tickets to watch a game at... More

The area around the O.Co.Coliseum is abandoned buildings and trash and an old community and in need of big time face lift....but that is pointing out the obvious if you have ever been there.They need everything,stadium,scoreboard,seating,better PA system etc.They do have a few good things...great public transportation (Bart and Amtrak and buses ) and once inside they put a good...

Too old. Sound system is always too loud. Food is lousy and way overpriced. Parking is too expensive and poorly designed for easy entrance or exit.

This stadium was built in the 1970s I think and it is definitely showing its age. If you remember it from decades ago, forget it because the Coliseum built "Mt Davis" in the area where the stadium was cut down and you had a great view of Oakland and the hills. Inside you see a very high structural monstrosity. It... More

As my 3-star rating says, this stadium is average. I've been to many stadiums for many different sports and this one is as vanilla as they come. Parking is adequate, concession and bathroom facilities are adequate, seating is adequate. It is also readily accessible by foot from the BART train, which is a big plus. The stadium doesn't add to... More

This park dates from the mid 1900s when apparently the industrial look was in style. It hasn't had much maintenance or upgrades. Since it is really a football stadium, the views and seating aren't particularly good. Things got even worse when the Raiders came back and they built Mt. Davis. Glad he's dead, but his legacy is still there. Good... More
