Citizens Bank Park
Capacity: 43,651 Opened: April 2004
It’s appropriate that the oldest one-name, one-city franchise in US professional sports resides in America’s birthplace. Visit Citizens Bank Park and experience some brotherly love from the Phillies.
What makes this stadium unique?
Citizens Bank Park’s field is below street level, creating bowl-style seating. This makes the stadium seem very large and is a tribute to former Phillies’ homes. The stadium held true to the city’s architecture and incorporates a lot of patterned bricks. The outfield frames the city’s skyline and the “Angle” in left center field causes some outfielder havoc for those not used to playing in at the park. Ashburn Alley in the outfield is a great place for fans to mingle before and during the game. Aside from the large array of concessions, fans can check out former Philly greats in the All-star walk, Memory lane, and the Walk of Fame.
