Fun night at the park, walked up and bought tickets last minute. Kids had fun and prices were reasonable. Worth the trip

The Richmond Squirrels have revived the appreciation of baseball and the ballpark for RVA. A fun way to spend the evening with cracker jacks, beer, and watching Nutzy lead the audience in rallies and games.

I could get a better review if we hadn't been rained out. My brother has mobility issues but the staff had an area set aside for that and we were ready to enjoy a ballgame with the home team. We got tickets to return again for free and will hopefully give an awesome review next time.

As a sports fan I find the Diamond a huge disappointment. There are so many new and old stadiums which have a much better fan experience. I moved here from Durham where their not so new stadium is so much more eye catching than this cement albatross. It reminds me of new Comisky field in Chicago. Such a lost opportunity.... More

Myself and my wife go to a lot of Richmond flying squirrels baseball games! Always! Always! Have a good time! Cost of the game and food is much cheaper than going to major league level games! Stadium is small but it's always good watching the up and coming players play ball!

Went with a friend for her Bachelorette Party (odd I know) but we had a blast. The park was nice with very friendly staff and clean restrooms. I grew up going to my local minor league park and this place blew them out of the water. It was a good time. I can see why they pack the stands even... More

Really easy to park here for $5. They do check your bags and no outside drinks allowed. We were lucky as it was a double header.The concession stands vary - wine from James River Cellars, local beers, countrywide beers and the usual fast food and dipping dots ice cream. We always have the cheapest seats above 3rd base - great... More

Squirrels won, so that was the best part. Food choices were poor, worst ever for a minor league team and we have been to many. But the whole atmosphere is your regular minor league experience so we liked it just fine. Walked up and bought cheap, behind the plate seats

Root on the Flying Squirrels and enjoy some family fun. Burgers and hotdogs are tasty too and round out the ballpark experience. Nice to see up and coming ball players on the way to the big show!

This place is the greatest! What a great time with family and friends out at the ballpark. Professional baseball with some of the game's future stars...up close. Front office & entire stadium operations were great, first class. Will always make this place 1st on things to do in Richmond. Only negative is the stadium...Mayor and city council should be embarrassed.... More
