“Red Sox Fan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Although Jet Blue Park is a very nice "replica" of Fenway in Boston, we sure miss the City of Palms Park. The staff workers for Jet Blue are enthusiastic and welcoming but having spoken to a few, they miss the "old" park as well. The food and drink prices are sometimes close to ridiculous and the fact that you must "buy" a lineup is quite insulting. As fans who attended many games in the old park and continue to attend in the new park, it is sometimes frustrating to drive on 75 in order to get to this new facility. Parking is good and trying to get out of the park whether for a day or night game is always interesting. I can say that the "police" are helpful and disperse the traffic as quickly as possible but we have been in the parking lot a good 20 minutes or more before being able to "get in line" to leave.
The park itself is wonderful for seating as there doesn't seem to be a bad seat in the house. We have visited several other park from Bradenton on down and this as well as the old park is by far the nicest in which we have been.

“Great Ballpark to see a Red Sox game”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Our first visit to JetBlue park was for the final game of spring training between the Red Sox and the Twins. Parking was easy and for this final spring training game it was free! We had great seats just behind first base with views of the entire field that were outstanding. We were under the covered area so the Florida sun didn't bake us. The Green Monster facsimile wall in left field was done very well. Will definitely want to try and catch another game here next year.

“Fun, clean and economical!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

After visiting the "old park" 2 years ago, we anxiously awaited this visit. The park did not disappoint.

The drive was easy as was the parking. They provide a shuttle similar to Disney World to take you from the parking lot to the stadium.

A live country band was playing outside when we arrived. Ribs, hot dogs, and lobster roll tents were filled with people. Some giveaways, too! Got some sunscreen and Chapstick.

Inside we walked around and saw the cleanest park ever. The signage was great and the green monster looked just like Fenway. The seats were comfortable and the right field grandstand was shaded, thankfully, on a warm, sunny Florida day.

We enjoyed the Red Sox game and the announcer was very professional.

“This is a Gem of a Ballpark”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

My 12 year old and i just attended a spring training game at Jet Blue and this really is a great place to watch a ball game. Great sight lines and a really nice feel, especially with the way the park is designed as a replica of Fenway Park. This is one of the nicer minor league ballparks i have been in and we have visited over 10 different parks.

“What a way to see a ball game!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

I attended two Red Sox games here and there doesn't seem to be a bad seat in the house. The architecture is great, a blend of Fenway and modern, and the field is beautiful. We went to one of the games two hours ahead of time to see batting practice. Once in the stadium, we learned there was no BP due to it being the very last game spring training. We were a little disappointed but had a fantastic time with all there was to do in the park. We visited the retired jersey number exhibits, combed through the merchandise shops, ate some good food, and watched a live band. Before we knew it, it was time for first pitch! If you go, allow time for traffic (20-40 minutes)and don't be afraid to use your GPS to avoid some of the traffic by rerouting. If you are on the first base line, the west parking lot is closer to your seat. Obviously, if you are near the third base line, then park in the east lot. We had a much easier time getting out of the west parking lot. One tip: they didn't seem to mind bringing some food in. My wife is a vegetarian and there were few options for her. She brought in some granola and the bag checkers didn't seem to mind.
