BEST PLACE TO SEE A SPRING TRAINING GAME (2004)
Head west, young sports fan! West Valley leaders know what their constituents want: good sports in good facilities and lots of 'em. Take a typical spring afternoon out at Surprise Stadium, the gorgeous baseball mecca that opened in 2002 for the Texas Rangers and Kansas City Royals. The stadium is packed with everything from Sun City retirees keeping their own score books and West Valley families enjoying the up-close-and-personal with major league stars to college spring breakers sunning on the plush grass beyond the outfield fence. It's a great baseball vibe in a beautiful baseball facility, a facility that, in time, will serve as part of the walkable urban core of the exploding city of Surprise.
