This is one of the most beautiful and historic ballparks in America. Jackie Robinson played his very first professional game in this stadium, and a museum and beautiful statue recall that moment. The place is the heart of the old, lovely Daytona community, surrounded by yachts and bridges on the Intracoastal waterway, palm trees and mossy oaks, quaint shops and good restaurants. It has a wonderful minor league team, the Daytona Tortugas, who are part of the Cincinnati Reds' organization. All kinds of special events, cheap beer nights, good snacks. This place provides such a terrific outing. It is also the biggest entertainment bargain in all of Central Florida. You can see 10 games for the price of one amusement park.

Stadium parking cost $5 when I visited. The stadium is next to the water (a river, not the ocean). There is an outer concourse with concessions and the team store. There are also picnic tables on the concourse. The seating on the third base side is aluminum bleachers. Behind the plate and down the first base side is plastic theater style seats. There is a roof behind home plate providing a bit of weather protection. In left field is a message board and a manual scoreboard. The staff was friendly and helpful.

If you are in the Daytona Beach area or even Orlando, I recommend taking the opportunity to attend a game here. The Tortugas are a fun team to watch. The park is located right on the water with a beautiful view. I attended the game with a huge work group and we enjoyed a tour and question and answer session.

We knew there wouldn't be a game, but we went anyway for the historic value. Besides one other car, we were the only ones in the parking lot. We got out and read all the signage outside the park, and read the rest of the signage looking through a gate. HISTORIC NOTE: Why it is named after Jackie Robinson is the fact that Daytona Beach, in 1946, was the only city in Florida that would allow him to play in spring training. He played for the Triple-A team the Montreal Royals. They were doing an exhibition game against their parent club, the Brooklyn Dodgers. This would be a fun place to see a game in season! The field looked pretty nice, and they seemed to have food specials on certain nights.

I drove down from St Augustine to watch the Tortugas in action and loved every minute of it! I parked up about 100 metres away, for free, on S Beach St, and walked to the game. After entering the ballpark, I went to the merchandise store and got talking to a man I thought was staff, but turned out to be the part-owner! He told me the story of how the Tortugas got their nickname etc, which was great. I loved the name and the mascot, so bought myself a t-shirt. The seats were benches but comfortable enough to enjoy the game in the warm early-evening sunshine. With the additional history of Jackie Robinson playing his first professional game in Daytona, I had an informative, enjoyable and unforgettable evening at the ballpark. Would definitely recommend a visit!

Used to be Daytona Cubs now the Daytona Tortugas (Cinncinnati Reds Affiliate). Jackie Robinson Ballpark, named after Jackie as he played his first professional game here in 1946 as a member of the Dodgers farm club Montreal Royals. Daytona Tortugas (spanish for turtles) games are played on a island, City Island and the atmosphere is great. Rated in the Top 10 places to watch a ball game by both USA Today '10 great places for a baseball pilgrimage' article, baseballpilgrimages.com. and BallPark Digest. One of the oldest minor league ballparks in the nation (1914), maybe 'the oldest' depended on how they figure it. Lots of history here as many hall of famers played on this field.

by BallPark Digest - "You don't get any more Floridian than Jackie Robinson Ballpark, home of the Daytona Cubs of the Florida State League. Much of Florida's baseball history intersects on this small island outside of downtown Daytona Beach, while one of the most important events in baseball history took place there as well."

What a fresh change of pace instead of going to see the over paid ball players. The park was clean, every seat in the stadium had a good view. Nice an relaxing. These Cubs even won! Great way to hang with the family and watch a bunch of young men strive to make the Big Show. Every seat is $7 except for the first 2 rows and parking is Free.

Forget Fenway or Wrigley, this is an old, historic park. It hosted the first ever professional interracial sports game, hence the name. This park is more important to baseball than any MLB ballpark currently standing.

That said it is a very basic ballpark to see a game, even at single A level. The seating for the most part are just uncovered bleacher benches, with covered seats behind homeplate.

It is set along the river and has free parking around the back. I had a great time and just like the ballparks mentioned above, you cant help but feel part of history when your there.

There's nothing better than taking in a minor league ball game on a warm spring evening while on vacation. Watching the Cubs play is a fun night out. The ballpark is small and personal which you can't get at a major league park. The prices on the tickets, food, and beer are very good.
