One of the most storied ball parks in America, Fenway Park is the oldest baseball park in the country and has been home to the Boston Red Sox since 1912. The historic red brick façade of the stadium’s Yawkey Way entrance conjures up images of the great baseball days of Babe Ruth, Lefty Grove, and “Smokey Joe” Wood. Whether you’re a baseball fan or not, it’s a great place to take in sporting history and to just bask in the fun filled atmosphere.
As this is America’s oldest ball park, it is also one of the smallest. Constrained by the surrounding community, this rather intimate park adds to the nostalgic atmosphere, harking back to the days before movable steel roof tops and massive crowds. Some of the historic features are still present and operational including the old wooden seats in the grandstand section and historic wall sections.
Guided tours of Fenway Park take visitors throughout the field and its facilities offering an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at America’s oldest baseball park. The history and tradition of the game and of Fenway itself all come alive in the one hour tour as visitors become acquainted with some of the Boston Red Sox’s most famous players and visit many sections of the field.
Fenway Park is located in central Boston. To reach the park by T- Subway take the Red Line to Park Street Station, the Blue Line to Government Center or the Orange Line to Downtown Crossing. From here riders should follow the signs for the Winter Street Concourse to Park St.
