Parking & Transportation:

Truist Park is located 10 miles northwest of downtown Atlanta. Ballpark Chasers on Facebook note that the traffic can be a bear. If you choose to drive, consider pre-purchasing parking so that you know where you’re headed. Then, leave plenty of time to get there.

Parking lot N29 is the only lot where tailgating is allowed.

If you plan to visit the Battery before the game, consider parking int eh Red, Yellow and Purple Decks. Parking validation is available to visitors who spend more than $50 at merchants in The Battery Atlanta. More information is available here.

Oversized vehicle: RVs can park in Braves Lot 29 or Braves Lot 43. Parking is $60 per vehicle. Specific parking passes for all oversized vehicles must be purchased in advance by calling the field at 404-577-9100.

Fans can also attend the game using public transportation. There are several buses that serve the stadium. Information is available here.

Stadium Tours:

Ballpark Chasers on Facebook highly recommend the ballpark tour. You do need to purchase the tickets in advance online, and the tour lasts about 90 minutes. They begin at the Right Field Gate and, on non-game days, include the dugout and the warning track. However, field and dugout access are limited during game day tours. Tickets cost $25 for adults, $15 for children, and $20 for members of the military.

General Information:

Bags: Truist Park does not allow any bags in the park, clear or otherwise. The only exceptions are for medical bags, breast pumps, diaper bags, and small, single compartment clutches no larger than 5” x 9”. Lockers are available for guests who have an oversize bag. The cost of storage is $11 per bag.

Food & Beverages: Fans may bring their own food, but it must be packaged inside a clear, gallon-sized plastic bag. Fans may also bring in one, factory-sealed bottle of water.

Cashless transactions: All transactions are cashless.

Signs: Signs are permitted if they are baseball-related, don’t block views, interfere with the game, contain advertising, or contain offensive materials. They must be made of cloth, paper, or other light, flexible materials and may not be affixed to anything.

Foul Balls: Fans may keep foul balls, as long as they don’t interfere with play or enter the playing area to retrieve them.

Gates: Gates open two hours prior to first pitch except on Thursdays (80 minutes) and Giveaway Dates (earlier).

Cameras: Camera lenses are limited to 5”.

Umbrellas: Umbrellas are permitted. Please be considerate when using one.

Where to Sit:

For shade, Baseball Road Trips recommends seats along the first-base line toward the right-field corner. In particular, aim for the back rows of Sections 110 – 120, 315 – 328, and 414 – 431.

If you aren’t on a tight budget, look for tickets in the Chop House Terrace (Sections 156 – 160), which include in-seat service and access to the Chop House restaurant.

The best value is in the terrace infield (Sections 216 – 218 and 233 – 238) for solid views at a reasonable price point.

Ballpark Chasers on Facebook recommend Chop House barstools (Sections 156 – 160) or Delta Seats, if you can afford them. They are the best seats in the park.

The Ultimate Baseball Road Trip recommends Dugout and Field Sections (Sections 100 – 118, and 119 to 124, respectively), or Terrace (Sections 201 – 208). If you hope to catch a ball, try for even-numbered Sections between 132 and 150.

For more value, try for the first 15 rows of the Upper Box infield (400 – 418). Looking for a great view of downtown? Try the odd- numbered Sections between 403 and 421.

Ballpark Savvy recommends sections 312 to 347, which are cost effective with good sight lines. The suggest avoiding the Terrace Level (Sections 210 – 248), which aren’t that much better than the seats above them.


  • The Ultimate Baseball Road Trip calls Coca-Cola the trademark food and says there are too many hot dog choices to pick just one.
  • Eater Atlanta recommends The Cleanup Burger, which sandwiches four grilled beef patties, bacon, cheese, hashbrowns, and an egg between buttermilk Belgian waffles. This monstrous meal serves up to four people. Find it near Section 113 at the 1871 Grille. They also recommend the Submarine Sandwich at the Carvery near Section 112, the Georgia BLT near Section 141, The Triple Play (papas rellenas) in Section 313 and 343), the ‘Douille Dog (andouille sausage hot dog with chili and cheese) in Section 313, and the Closer (a beef hot dog fried and wrapped in mozzarella-whipped potatoes (Section 343).
  • The Infatuation recommends The Original Burger by Holeman + Finch (Sections 335, 337, and in the H+F restaurant at the Chophouse Gate), the Submarine Sandwich (Cavery, Section 112), the Closer (The Market, Section 343), the Smokey Q Baseball Helmet (nachos in a souvenir helmet, in Section 329), and Corn Ribs (Xfinity Club).
  • Ryan’s teammate, Mathew and his family, second the endorsement of H + F. They said it’s the best burger they have ever had.
  • Outside the park, in the Battery, Ballpark Chasers on Facebook recommend Superica for excellent catfish tacos.

First Time Visitors:

There is no mention of any special first time visitor traditions.


On Alumni Sundays, Truist Park hosts former Braves Legends on the Georgia Power Pavilion in the Plaza at 11:30 a.m. Fans can get pre-game autographs.

Fans may request autographs until 1 hour before the first pitch, at which time tickets will be enforced.

Other Stadium Tips & Highlights:

When fans ask Ballpark Chasers where to eat, the Battery Atlanta is the most common response. Open to the public 365 days each year, the 2.25 million square foot destination offers food, cocktails, and retail shops. Before the Braves play, visit the Battery Atlanta Plaza before entering Truist Park for performances by the Braves Entertainment Teams, live music on Saturdays, and other entertainment.

Delaware North Sportservice sponsors a designated driver program. Guests who register at the DD booth on the Lower Level near Section 141 receive a free 12 ounce can of Coca-Cola product.

The Monuments Garden, by Section 125 in the Lower Level, includes the Braves Hall of Fame, a water feature that highlights retired numbers, and a statue of Hank Aaron, among other exhibits. There are also statues of other players located at the gates. Phil Niekro appears by the 3rd Base Gate. Warren Spahn stands at the Left Field Gate.
