Went to a game and really enjoyed the nice atmosphere. People who love Baseball for sure. Food, popcorn and drinks were not overly expensive and seating comfortable.

This is the perfect minor league ball park. Great atmosphere, great price, great selection of beer and food. It’s stadium food prices but that’s part of going to such a venue. The store is amazing. This is a great family or friends evening out. Parking...More

This is the modern version of the Durham Bulls park. It's still no bull. If you wanna see the original balk park, it's about mile northwest of present park.

Had a blast! This was our first game in Durham. We had front row seats next to the dugout. Parking was easy to access, reasonably priced, & well organized - we were in & out quickly. Lots of food & drink options in the stadium....More

We went here while visiting Duke. This was a fun Sunday evening at a great price. I love that they serve local beers. Our $18 tickets 3 rows from first plate were great. We even got to run the bases after the game.

Yes it is kid stroller friendly but you probably will need to leave it somewhere when you take your seats. Maybe take a lightweight chain and lock to prevent theft?

The parking lot for Durham Bulls game will have a person collecting parking fees 2 hours before game. During the week there is a working pay station. If you park before the collector is there on the weekend, you will be fine.
