“Gwinnett Braves Fun!”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Easy access, in and out; parking is plentiful. Stadium is very intimate and not a bad seat anywhere. Fans seem more fun and family oriented than at the regular stadiums. Mascots constantly interact with the crowd during inning breaks and time outs. Only down side was the concessions -- the one we ate at (Niekro's) seem pretty pricey, although we did get to see Phil Niekro and he interacted with fans as well.

“Fun outing”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Good prices, fun day of baseball, no bad seats. Constant entertainment between innings. THe food is pricey, but show me a baseball stadium that isn't! It tastes good for what you get. We really enjoy the $10 or $15 seats and have a great experience every time we go. Its a lot of fun to see these up and coming young men sometimes just weeks before a major league debut!

“Great place to see a game!”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

We live about 20 minutes from CoolRay Field and we go there at least a couple of times a year. The Gwinnett Braves moved from Richmond, VA a few years ago and they are, I believe a AAA farm team for the Atlanta Braves. As a parent, I would much rather take my daughters to CoolRay than Turner Field. Going to see the Atlanta Braves is expensive, a long drive and we can avoid the inner city. This is more of a family-friendly environment.

“DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Great park, awful policies.

You will love the park and the field. They are top notch. But you will end up paying major league prices. The team's first poor decision was not allowing fans to bring food or drink into the park. This is due to the fact they are trying to pay off the stadium bond and need fans to buy their overpriced concessions. Tickets aren't cheap either. Beers are major league prices as well.

If you live close and are in need of a night out, consider. Otherwise, spend about the same money and head to Turner Field and watch the big league Braves.

“Great minor league park”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

Love this park. I've been to many minor league parks and this is a jewel. It doesn't have the surroundings that parks in Louisville or Memphis have, but it's a fun place to watch a game. They have a great kids area with several of those bouncy castle things. The grass bern in the outfield is a fun place to watch the game and a good value. The food venues are average, pretty standard ballpark fare. I do love that they have different food truck vendors come in for different games. I think this was a master stroke in that it's hip and allows some unique food choices for fans. The ball games are run a little too much like the parent club and lack a little of that minor league charm that I enjoy, but it's a quality family experience.
