Philly Visitor Guide
Citizens Bank Park
On April 12, 2004, the Philadelphia Phillies christened their new 43,500-seat Citizens Bank Park. The stadium has lush natural grass and a view of the Philadelphia skyline. Ashburn Alley, the in-stadium entertainment complex named nostalgically after Phillies’ great Richie Ashburn, features a Memory Lane of Phillies lore, along with batting and throwing games. The ball park also has upgraded concessions (inlcuding outposts from Chickie and Pete's, Rick's, Tony Luke's and Chestnut Hill's McNally's), a restaurant that operates even when there is no game in McFadden's, and plenty of parking. Although SEPTA's Broad Street Line is still the best way to get to the game.Meanwhile, Citizens Bank Park is one of the most kid-friendly ball parks in the country. At the Phanatic Fun Zone, youngsters can enjoy the largest play area for kids in the Major Leagues. But that’s just the beginning: kids can build their own Phanatic, rock climb and enjoy dollar dogs and soft drinks all game long.
