“An OK experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2012

There are ball parks that contribute to an experience and there are those that are just ball parks. This is just a ball park. Most of the walking areas are either very narrow or have blocked views of the field. The food was not particularly appetizing yet it was still pretty costly. The seating is either plastic stadium seats in the bowl or aluminum benches in the bleacher sections. The bleachers have long rows of 30 seats on a bench. Try sitting in Seat 15 and needing a bathroom break. The berm was an afterthought since light poles sit in the front of it and block the view in some areas. Stadium parking was only $7, but the deal is across Lakeland Hills Blvd from the park, parking for a donation in the church parking area. Drive up Lakeland to Granada, turn right instead of left, and follow the helpful sign holders. No waiting, no traffic light to fight, nice kids making money for the church - at least I hope it was going to the church. Either way, it was cheaper and faster in and out than the stadium. After visiting Clearwater's park earlier in the week, Lakeland's serviceable but utilitarian park was lackluster.

“Beautiful complex for Spring Training”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

What a gorgeous complex with great access to watch the big leaguers during spring trainign practices on the back fields. Get up close to the players with excellent opportunites to get autographs from your favourite Tigers!

if you are in the area during the first few weeks of spring training practice it's a definate must..especially considering it's totally FREE!
