Fenway Park History

Fenway Park is the oldest active Major League Baseball stadium. It was first built in 1912, then rebuilt in 1934. In 2012, a century after the stadium first was built, the park was added to the National Register of Historic Landmarks.

The stadium has hosted concerts by musicians such as Ray Charles, B.B. King and Paul McCartney. In 2018, Fenway Sports Group created the MGM Music Hall at Fenway, a concert venue with 5,000 seating capacity.

Fenway Park is famous for historical features such as Fenway’s red seat and the Green Monster. The red seat, a bleacher chair painted red in a crowd of green bleachers, marks Ted Williams’ famous homerun in 1946. The Green Monster has been a part of the stadium since it was built in 1912. Fenway is one of the last ballparks to still have a manual scoreboard. The Green Monster is also famous, or perhaps infamous, for preventing potential home runs from flying out of the park. Later, the seats built on the Green Monster in 2003 would become one of the stadium’s most popular areas.

Parking and Admission at Fenway Park

The Red Sox team recommends using public transportation to get to the stadium. Fenway Park is at the center of several transit stops. One of these stops is right across the street from Gate A at the corner of Jersey Street and Brooklyn Avenue.

For patrons who need event parking, there are several options. On weekends and evenings, fans can park at one of Fenway Park’s two partner garages. These garages are the Prudential Center Garage or the 100 Clarendon Street Garage. Prudential Center Garage is located just under a mile from the stadium. 100 Clarendon Street Garage is approximately 1.3 miles from the stadium. Fans can receive a discount by scanning a same-day Red Sox ticket when leaving either garage. Patrons can also find alternative parking spots through apps such as SpotHero. Typically, parking at Fenway Park costs $10 to $50, depending on the event and location. To reduce traffic, the stadium also asks patrons to park in a location that is on the side of the stadium they are traveling from.

For patrons with disabilities, there are a limited number of accessible parking spots near the stadium. Patrons may also reserve paid accessible spaces at independent lots near the stadium.

Fenway Park policy allows fans to bring in a bag that is 5″x9″x2″ or smaller. Per Fenway Park rules, prohibited items include alcoholic beverages, weapons or dangerous items, laser pointers, costumes or masks, and noisemakers. Fans can find more at the Fenway Park Information Guide.

One of Fenway Park’s great perks is its on-site, organic garden. The garden is located on the roof of the Red Sox front offices and harvests about 6,000 pounds of produce annually.

Fans with a hankering for nostalgic dishes can find classic Red Sox concessions at several locations throughout the park. These include baseball famous Fenway Franks, footlong dogs, popcorn, cracker jacks, peanuts, pretzels, and fries. Fans also have easy access to concessions right from the stands, such as pizza, Fenway Franks, popcorn, drinks, and more.

Fenway also provides several other crowd-pleasers, including Savenor’s hamburgers, cheeseburgers, sandwiches, chicken tenders, clam chowder, loaded nachos, fried dough, and other dishes.

For beverages, Fenway Park has a guide for both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Some listings include beers, wine and mixed drinks. Listings also include non-alcoholic beer, Coca-Cola products and coffee from Dunkin’.
