Citizens Bank Park opened April 12, 2004, as a world-class facility far improved from Veterans Stadium, the Phillies' home since 1971. Designed by two leading architectural firms Ewing Cole Cherry Brott and HOK Sport the ballpark combines Philadelphia's rich tradition of sports architecture with unmistakably modern style. The $336 million, baseball-only stadium has a natural grass field, multi-angled "bowl style" seating, breathtaking views, dazzling amenities and a staggering array of special, fan-friendly features.
Soak up the scene:
Citizens Bank Park is located in Philadelphia's South Side stadium complex next to the homes of the Eagles, Sixers and Flyers. Come hungry because an effort's been extended to highlight local cuisine, including hoagies and cheesesteaks. Ashburn Alley is an outfield concourse of shops and concessions named for Phils' legend Richie Ashburn, and a highlight there is Bulls' BBQ, where you may find former Phils' slugger Greg "The Bull" Luzinski hanging out.
