SPORTS AND OUTDOORS
Across the Delaware River from Philadelphia at Campbell’s Field, the Camden Riversharks boast one of the most family-friendly ballparks in the country. With the Philadelphia skyline and Benjamin Franklin Bridge as a breathtaking backdrop, you can enjoy a game, visit the Utz Fun Zone, picnic beyond Left Field, run the bases and marvel at post-game fireworks (after every Friday home game). Campbell’s Field, named independent minor league Ballpark of the Year by Baseball America magazine, is the home of the Riversharks, who play in the Atlantic League, but it is also a symbol of the revival of the Camden waterfront. Opened in 2001, the park has 6,425 seats, all of which look out over the Delaware River toward the magnificent Benjamin Franklin Bridge into Philadelphia. The minor league season begins in May and home games start at a family-friendly time of 6:35 p.m. So bring the whole gang and you’ll be in for a real treat.
