“Great Stadium and Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

Parkview Field is a great place to see a minor league baseball game. The new stadium is a major improvement over the old one, and the location is nice right downtown. As with most minor league parks, the costs are low, they have more entertainment than you would ever see at a major league game, and they cater much more to the fan.

One of the nice features is the area behind the outfield fence which is a big hill, perfect for families with little kids who have no interest in sitting in a chair for 9 innings.

The only downside, and this is no fault of the team or field...is the level of play is relatively low for a professional baseball team. Being a single A ball team, you don't get to see many guys that will ever make the big leagues. The plus side of this though, is you don't ever see the guys who are making millions who look like they don't care, these guys are all playing 100% trying to get noticed by the big league team.

Overall, a very nice way to spend a day out at the ballpark and if you don't care about seeing major league players you can save yourself a boatload, sit closer to the action, and see guys who are giving it their all.

“Great space -- smack in the center of a city that's come to life!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

We've enjoyed several baseball games at Parkview Field, and we're always amazed at the good crowds and upbeat atmosphere. There are no bad seats, and the variety of food is amazing. We went to a Colts game in Indy and noticed that the food variety at Parkview Field is much better than at Lucas Field House! We've also attended two privagte events, both in the winter time, and they were great fun. People can rent the indoor space behind home plate, and the catered food is sophisticated and well-presented. We are impressed that during the summer, people can walk through the stadium and even buy baseball food for lunch. This place is a treasure for Fort Wayne.

“Tin Caps”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Was really surprised by how family friendly this venue was. There was a great area for the kids to get into bounce houses and use the climbing wall and it didn't cost an arm and a leg to let them do it. Fireworks were the best of the year, mainly because of the drought but we throughly enjoyed them.

“Love this downtown baseball diamond”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Parkview Field is beautiful and provides a wonderful view of downtown Fort Wayne. The parking is plentiful and it is easy to find. Leaving is easier than many venues as local traffic is not extremely heavy and doesn't compete a lot with patrons leaving the field. The teams are easy to see, seating is comfortable and special nights are plentiful. If you like baseball, make sure to catch a game next summer!

Great entertainment for the whole family, best park around. There is plenty to eat and do nearby, so make a weekend of it sometime.
