Riverwalk Stadium

4 posts in this topic

Riverwalk Stadium, home of the AA Montgomery Biscuits (2006 Southern League Champions), opened in 2004. It's located downtown in the riverfront warehouse district, across the railroad tracks from the Montgomery Riverwalk. Completion of the stadium was one of the first major components of the city's riverfront revitalization effort.

Freight trains roll by the park - sometimes 2 or 3 per game.

The ballpark is an adaptive reuse of an old train depot

and the site was once a rather unpleasant Confederate Military Prison.

Nice review here.

Terrific reuse of old RR buildings with something to say archtecturally. Always that area had potential.

ESPN SportsTravel rated Montgomery's Riverwalk Stadium at #6 in the top ten minor league ballparks worth travelling to. According to the article, no major or minor league ballpark in the country succeeds in incorporating preexisting buildings into the design as fully as Riverwalk Stadium.
