Great stadium, great team, fun experience at a spring traing game but this city has very limited parking and I got a ticket when I parked along the street with NO no parking signs. Last time I will visit this sad city.

Stadium is great, we went to a Towson University Alumni crab feast event there, then watched the Orioles play spring ball. Can't wait for next year's event, it was worth traveling from Maryland to attend this event.

Probably one of the best sporting facilities I've been in. The concourses are a sandy tan color, very wide, and look like a palace. The whole place is lined with Oriole banners and signs, including all 7 retired numbers. The sightlines are great with everyone...More

We always arrived at least an hour before the game. This allowed for decent parking, eating and looking at the souvenir shop. Good luck!
