Coolray Field is a 10,427-seat minor league baseball park in unincorporated Gwinnett County, Georgia . It is the home field of the Gwinnett Braves, the Triple-A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves.Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to CoolRay Field by using our Lawrenceville sightseeing website .
Coolray Field hosted its first regular season baseball game on April 17, 2009, a 7–4 loss to the Norfolk Tides. The stadium site is located approximately two miles (3 km) east of the Mall of Georgia along Georgia 20, between Interstate 85 and Georgia 316.
The 44acre site was previously farmland and forest. An additional 73acre of mostly forest around it became a mixed-use project, after a February 2009 rezoning by the Gwinnett County Commission. Naming rights are held by Coolray, an air conditioning and plumbing company based in nearby Marietta.
The stadium construction and maintenance is being paid by the taxpayer-funded Gwinnett County government, but the Braves will keep most of the revenue from ticket and concession stand sales. The municipal bonds used to pay for the stadium run for 30 years (until 2038), but the Braves have an option to back out of the contract after only half of that time (in 2023), if the county does not maintain the facility at an acceptable level. This would leave county taxpayers responsible for the remainder.

I love it .I went to see a baseball tournament and was perfect day. The coolray has big parking lots and the food is good. You can see the play perfectly.
My boyfriend and I went to a triple a game and were impressed with the stadium, food and ease of entry/exit. We had a great time.
