Camelback Ranch Stadium

10710 W. Camelback Road Phoenix, AZ 85037 | West Phoenix | 623-302-5000

Location Description:

Widely considered one of the crown jewels of the Cactus League, this high-end westside stadium features a glitzy decor scheme of steel and stone, reflecting pools stocked with fish, up-close interaction with big league sluggers, and even Dodger Dogs for fans of the Big Blue Wrecking Crew. As one of the brand-new Cactus League parks, it's got all the amenities of Chase Field in an intimate setting that mirrors the atmosphere in the best old-time ballparks. Parking is a cinch, the ushers aren't as Draconian about seat-sneaking as what you'll find at, say, Peoria Sports Complex, and the Chicago-style hot dogs are cheaper and tastier than the ones the Cubbies sell in Mesa. The architecture is what really sets this park apart, though: The copper-colored oxidized steel shell of the grandstand blends beautifully into the surrounding countryside, the gently sloping lawn unfolds gracefully inside the gate, and the Gabion stone retaining walls add a fresh modern touch. The overall atmosphere is still far from a finished product, and will come as the park is broken in, but it's already our favorite place to watch a game.
