fenway park venue guide

Known as America’s Most Beloved Ballpark, Fenway Park is rich in baseball history, having been the site of the very first All-Star Game in 1946. Though generations have come and gone, the 106-year-old Boston venue has remained, becoming the oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball and a National Historic Place. Fenway has hosted the World Series ten times, with its home team the Boston Red Sox winning five of them.

Check out this detailed guide for everything you need to know about the historic ballpark, from tips on concessions to nearby hotels, and see why it really “knocks it out of the park” in terms of fan experience. If you’re a baseball enthusiast, don’t strike out on your chance to visit!

Fenway Park Features:


  • “The Green Monster,” the 37-foot left field wall of the park located a short distance from the home plate, benefitting right-handed hitters. Named after the Red Sox official mascot, Wally the Green Monster.

  • “The Triangle,” a region of the center field where the walls form a triangle close to the home plate. It is not the true center of the field, which is unmarked to the left of the triangle.

  • “Williamsburg,” the bullpen area built in front of the right-center field bleachers for the benefit of left-fielder Ted Williams and other left-handed batters to hit more home runs.

  • “The Lone Red Seat,” located in the right field bleachers (Section 42, Row 37, Seat 21) that represents the longest home run ever hit at Fenway. Ted Williams made the historic play in 1946.

  • “Pesky’s Pole,” the pole on the right field foul line, which stands 302 feet from the plate, the shortest outfield distance in Major League Baseball. Despite the short wall, home runs in this area are scarce, as the fence sharply curves away from the pole.

  • The Big Concourse, located between Gates B and C, features the park’s widest selection of food and beverages. It also has pregame entertainment and family-style picnic tables.

  • The Champions Club offers group gatherings with reservations to eat before a Red Sox game.

  • Hall of Fame, created in 1995 to commemorate the outstanding careers of former Red Sox team members.

  • Kid Nation Clubhouse, an open area for children of all ages to enjoy fun activities while families relax.

  • Luxury suites that can be rented on a game-to-game basis.

  • Red Sox Team Store for souvenirs.

Fenway Park Parking


There are several garages and lots located in the surrounding area of Fenway Park, with prices that range from hourly rates of $5 to parking rates of over $40. There are also meters on Beacon Street that cost up to $22 starting at 6 p.m. on Red Sox game nights.

There is a $100 fine for parking in the Fenway/Kenmore Residential Parking District during events, so make sure you read the signs and stay away from that area when looking for parking!


Other Ways to Get To Fenway Park


Since traffic delays are likely, we highly suggest considering other forms of transportation, which will save you on gas, parking and time! Lucky for you, Fenway Park is located walking distance from public transportation, around the corner from the Kenmore T station.

If you’re traveling to see a game from a surrounding city, the Commuter Rail has got you covered! The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) gives you easy access to Fenway Park by train. Prices range from $2.25 to $12.50 based on how far you’re traveling from.

For those commuting from Boston, you can purchase a CharlieCard for $2.25 per one-way trip and hop on the T to the park. For a more local option you can also take the MBTA buses, which serve the area around Fenway Park. The CharlieCard costs $1.70 and the ticket costs $2.00.

When exiting the stations, follow the signs to Fenway Park, then turn left on Commonwealth Ave, left on Brookline Ave, and Fenway Park is just over the bridge.


Fenway Park Security


All persons, bags and personal items will be searched before you enter Fenway Park. Make sure you aren’t bringing any of the following items through the gates as you will not be allowed in with it:


  • Bags or items larger than 16” x 16” x 8”

  • Cans, bottles, glass containers (sealed water bottles are allowed)

  • Alcoholic beverages, illegal substances

  • Weapons

  • Flag poles, sign poles, brooms

  • Pepper spray, mace

  • Tobacco products

Visitors aren’t allowed to exit and re-enter the gates.

Guests have reported that ushers and security could either be very rude or extremely nice. They are generally helpful and successful at maintaining the safety of visitors.

We suggest arriving early to account for the amount of time you will have to wait in line for security checks. Since Fenway is a popular venue, you’ll be faced with a long line at the gates.


Fenway Park Food and Concessions Map


Visitors to Fenway Park have noted that there are a wide variety of concessions options throughout the venue, conveniently set up so that they surround the field. This allows patrons to view the game while standing in line or eating at a picnic area.

These aren’t your typical concessions, either. Sure, the game day staples are there (hot dogs, beer, nachos), but Fenway also offers different tastes of cuisines for all appetites. They include Asian, Cuban, Mexican, Italian, seafood, desserts (soft serves, fried doughs), snacks, and healthy/kosher options.

Beer starts at 9$ and water/soda costs $5. The costs are about what you would expect for any sports game – a bit on the pricey side, but worth indulging in as you watch the team swing at the ball. The food is reported to be of mediocre quality, lacking taste. If you’re a picky eater, come with a full stomach!


Fenway Park Seating


Visitors have stated that seating at the Fenway is cramped but close to the action. They are old fashioned, lacking cup holders and comfortability. However, the seats offer mostly good views from any part of the park, provided you aren’t behind that Pesky Pole!

There are higher quality seats available at increased prices for those who don’t want to be squeezed into one of the tightly put seats.

During hot days, cooler seats are located higher up in the 3rd base line where the open space brings a breeze.


The Fenway Park Experience


The overall atmosphere of sitting amongst the sea of fans is one that is special to Fenway and a testament to the venue’s rich baseball history. There are plenty of interesting plaques and historical memorabilia hung up throughout the venue.

Fans have reported that there are several restrooms, so you don’t have to look far or wait long for one.

There are jumbo screens that show the game around the ballpark, covering many different angles so that you can always tune into the action no matter where you are.

There’s a reason why Fenway Park is America’s Most Beloved Ballpark; it’s highly recommended by those who have visited. If you’re looking for the ultimate baseball fan experience, Fenway is a classic.
