Principal Park is a great venue for baseball. A great place to see the Chicago Cubs up close. The food is fair and the beer is expensive, but...hey it's baseball!

Parking is relatively easy. Stadium is small. Seats are hard. Admission is reasonable, but they need to invest money in upkeep. Bathrooms are generally clean.

Iowa Cubs has a great home in Principal Park. Love going and supporting the home team and feels like you are in a major league staduim. Without the large crowd and higher prices. When you plan your trip to Des Moines make time to caught a Iowa Cub game. You will be glad you did.

Very nice for a minor league ball park. Modern. Good seating. Plenty of concessions (too pricey but that's any game at any park). Clean restrooms. Not enough parking and have to walk a ways

If you're looking for an affordable stress free time out with friends or family this is it. Most seats are a great view as the stadium is small. Opportunities for kids to participate in races or trivia for prizes. Mug club for regulars. Good time even if your not a baseball fan.

We have gone to the Principal park several times and have enjoyed it every time. We were thrilled one night to greet and get the autograph of Ryan Sandberg of the Chicago Cubs, who has always been a favorite of ours. The usual concessions with the usual prices but it is a very fun time to take a family and... More

We love the I-Cubs...and I am a Yankee fan!!! My Chicago-Cubs-fan-husband and I bought a mini-pack season tickets for 2014 and could not have been more pleased. This park knows what it is doing to keep people coming back and the young talents on the team are so fun to watch! Concessions are spendier, but not compared to major league... More
