SunTrust Park is Atlanta's baseball stadium and official home to the Atlanta Braves. Originally constructed as the Centennial Olympic Stadium for the 1996 Olympic Games, the park was then renamed Turner Field and converted to a 49,000-seat baseball stadium the following year. It has since been remodeled and is now known as SunTrust Park.
Stop by one of the park’s many food stands and sit-down restaurants for a bite to eat, or grab a pint at the Terrapin Taproom—one of the stadium’s most popular dining and drinking establishments. Families with kids can head to Hope & Will's Sandlot, a kid's zone with a rock-climbing wall, zipline, and carnival games. While most Atlanta residents and season ticket holders will tell you the best way to get to know the Braves’ home is to catch a game, it’s also possible to visit SunTrust Park on an Atlanta city tour or see it from above on a helicopter tour.
