The historic ballpark opened on June 4, 1914 as the Daytona City Island Ballpark. It consisted of a baseball field and set of wooden bleachers. In the 1920's, a road circling the ballpark was built to accommodate the growing number of spectators who were traveling to the ballpark by automobile. A grandstand with a press box was built behind home plate to replace the original wooden bleachers along with two additional covered sections of grandstands along the first base line. A bleacher section along the third base line was added shortly after the first renovation in the 1950's. The present day grandstand and press box were built in 1962. A home team clubhouse was constructed down the left field line in 1972 to accommodate the Montreal Expos. In 1973 left field bleachers, with a capacity of 2,500 seats, were installed. The park was renamed Jackie Robinson Ballpark in 1989 as the stadium served as host to the first racially integrated game in baseball history.

The Daytona Cubs played here for 22 years.

The 2015 season will be the first season with the Cincinnati Reds affiliation.

A team store is located in the ballpark during the season, in the off season, a satellite team store in located in the Daytona Tortugas front office at 110 E. Orange Ave. Directly south of the ballpark.

Its pretty exciting environment for being a minor league team. Good seating to see the entire field from anywhere. Tickets are reasonably priced. Food is a little up-charged but not horribly priced. They do fireworks on Friday or Saturday, cant quite remember which day now. Which isn't a cheap little show its a decent firework display lasting 5-10 minutes.

The baseball season has yet to start but it did not keep us from taking a trip to the Jackie Robinson Ball park . It is a beautiful park that you can see from outside the gates and is the home to the Daytona Beach Tortugas. If you ever get a chance to attend a game do so.

There is always something going on at the Tortuga games. We went to July 4 celebration with fireworks. This was our second time and we thoroughly enjoyed it. There are giveaways, lots of food choices, games, just a fun day. There are covered grandstand seats and open grandstand seats. The prices are ridiculously inexpensive for a night of entertainment with... More

Fun to watch games here. Like watching the young players as they grow to get to the major league level. Good entertainment value for the youngsters. Kids get to run on the field after the game.. And the Saturday night fireworks are nice.

This is a great little ballpark right in the middle of downtown Daytona Beach. It's next to the waterway with a Yacht Club right next door. Lots of restaurants to go to and inside you can get all of the traditional ballpark foods and lots of activities for kids. parking is easy to get to and free right next door.

Its a typical old ball park. Seating is close to the field. I understand its one of if not the oldest park in baseball. Staff does a nice job keeping fans entertained between innings.

They have games here, but if you watched the Jackie Robinson story, Daytona Beach was where he started out. They have many activities for the kids.
