Citizens Bank Park
Home of the Fightin’ Phils
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.
But where the ball park really excels is when it comes to food. Recently voted Best Ballpark Eats by the first ever Food Network Awards, Citizens Bank Park is a gustatory adventure. Philly.com has two cool videos about the awesome food at Citizens Bank Park. You can watch them here and here.
Look out for long lines waiting for an order of delicious crab fries at Chickie and Pete’s, authentic Philadelphia hoagies at Planet Hoagie, sinfully amazing roast pork sandwiches at Tony Luke’s, and the creative cheesesteak variation from Chestnut Hill’s McNally’s that is the Schmitter.
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.
