JetBlue Park is here!
Florida Travel Guide to JetBlue Park
A few weeks ago we gave you the sneak peek of JetBlue Park but here’s an aerial photograph of the actual live stadium! You’ll also see six practice fields, that are part of the complex. We’ve been waiting since the project began in August 2010 to see the final result and we’re glad to share Fort Myers’ new spring training home for the Boston Red Sox with you.
Fenway Park Nostalgia
The $78 million ballpark has seating for 11,000 and has adapted a number of elements from Fenway Park so fans and players feel at home – a manual scoreboard and in left field, the 37-foot high Green Monster. Fans can even sit seating on top of or behind the wall, just like at home. JetBlue Park also has six practice fields, an HD video board and interactive areas for families. State-of-the-art training facilities also include a rehabilitation center and major and minor league operations.
We’re always happy to feature environmentally-sustainable destinations and jetBlue Park is one of them. Among several features within the facility is the careful consideration to native plants.
Public Open House
Baseball fans, mark your calendars for the public open house on February 25th!
