And you thought it was just about baseball. Whether your sluggers are obsessed with the Braves or your family is just looking for a fun way to spend a summer afternoon, a trip to Truist Park delivers. From a cutting-edge kids’ area in the stadium to a splash pad on your way out of it (not to mention the baby changing tables in every restroom), you’ll be singing Take Me Out to the Ball Game all summer long. Keep reading for our favorite things you won’t want to miss about a trip to Truist Park.

Truist Park Kids Zone

Hope & Will's Sandlot, presented by Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, is a state-of-the-art kids' zone with a rock-climbing wall, zipline, carnival games, and more. You'll find it in sections 152-155. Games and attractions require a token to play, which can be purchased in the Sandlot for $1 each. 

Home Run: Kids 14 and under can enjoy interactive games and experiences in Hope & Will's Sandlot at no charge, every Sunday.

Kids Club

Kids ages 3-14 can gear up like the pros and get exclusive offers for Braves games and events all year long by joining the Kids Club. The All-Star Membership is $34 and includes Ozzie AlbiesT-Shirt Jersey, headband, arm sleeve, socks, drawstring bag, and more. Or, opt for the free Braves Rookie Membership and get invitations to exclusive Kids Club access-only events. Memberships can be purchased online or at Truist Park during a game day.

Home Run: After every Sunday home game, kids ages 4-14 are invited onto the field after the game to run the bases just like a professional baseball player. No reservations are necessary—just line them up at the 3rd base ramp (section 131) at the bottom of the 7thinning. If you join the All-Star Kids Club, you can gain VIP Access to Kids Run the Bases, but you don't have to be a member to participate on Sunday's base runs. 

Food

First things first: outside food and sealed plastic bottles of water are allowed inside Truist Park as long as it fits inside a clear, gallon-sized plastic bag. One bag of food and one bottle of water per ticket will be permitted, which can save families headed to see the Braves play a considerable amount of money. Or, choose among some of Atlanta's best restaurants just outside the park, in The Battery. 

Home Run: If you spring for buying food from the vendors at Truist Park, we love the H+F Burger in the outfield and behind home plate. And for dessert, don't miss an opportunity to have a High Road Craft tomahawk bar, which is dipped in chocolate and topped with mouth-watering toppings. 

 

Potty & Nursing Room

Finally! Somebody gets it! There are diaper changing stations In. Every. Bathroom. At. Truist. Park. If this doesn't make you a Braves fan, I'm not sure what will. Luckily, it's not the only reason to get behind Atlanta's hometown team. Family restrooms are found in sections 120, 143, 140, 148, 152, 313, 323, 329 and 346.

Home Run: Truist Park offers a lounge that is a fully dedicated space for nursing mothers that's staffed by a Guest Services ambassador. Located on the lower level near the left-field gate at section 141, the air-conditioned nursing lounge is equipped with comfortable rocking chairs, a diaper changing station, and a play area for toddlers.

 

Mizuno Glove Rental

If you forget to bring your glove for trying to catch a foul ball (or home run), you can rent a Mizuno glove at two locations in the ballpark. Glove rentals are free but a $1 charge is added to your card until the glove is returned. The glove must be returned by end of the game or you will be charged the entire cost of the glove. 

Home Run: For your best bet to catch a ball, the Home Run Porch seats can be found just beyond the outfield wall running between the left-field foul pole and the start of the Chophouse seats in right-center. Not only are these seats some of the most affordable in the park, but they're also a favorite of ball hawks looking to snag a souvenir during pre-game batting practice. Just be sure to wear sunscreen, because this part of the park gets very little shade.

Monument Garden

Learn about the history of the Atlanta Braves at Monument Garden, featuring artifacts, memorabilia, statues, and sculptures. Children will especially love the interactive displays and audio features. Find it on the Lower Level, Section 125, and don't miss the Hank Aaron tribute of hundreds of bats that spell out 755 (for his 755 home runs). 

Home Run: Head to this spot when you need a little cooling off. The giant fans and shade in this area are good at their jobs.
