Six Great Places to Visit in New Britain - Part 5

New Britain Stadium

New Britain Stadium is the home of the New Britain Rock Cats. It's located at 230 John Karbonic Way in Willow Brook Park. The Rock Cats are a double-A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins major league baseball team.

The stadium opened in 1996 and has had continued success. The reason for the success is that it's just a great family oriented ballpark. General admission and parking is only $5 each. All of the food is great and reasonably affordable. Cheap tickets and cheap food combined with an amazing baseball experience makes for a perfect night out for the family.

Down the left field line there is a kids play area. It has an inflatable slide, a moonbounce, a speed pitching machine and various other activities. The teams mascot "Rocky" does a great job of entertaining the kids and getting the crowd fired up.

At the top of both the first and third base sides there is an outdoor grill, a bar, and a patio open to all fans. Down the right field line there is the "the AT&T patio" that has another grilling area, picnic tables, and a large tent that can be rented to groups of 25 or more for kids birthdays or any special events.

The stadium is usually more crowded on weekends but parking is still easy. The best night to go is definitely on Friday because there is always a fireworks show after the game. The whole package makes for an amazing family experience.
