Sloan Park is an American baseball park in Mesa, Arizona, which opened in 2014. The primary operator is the Chicago Cubs and the ballpark serves as their spring training home and is also the home of the Arizona League Cubs of the Arizona League and the Mesa Solar Sox of the Arizona Fall League. Sloan Park was built and paid for by residents of the City of Mesa, approved by ballot measure. It was primarily built to house spring training operations for the Chicago Cubs, who had previously played at nearby Hohokam Stadium. The stadium design was led by Populous. The dimensions of the playing surface closely match those of the Cubs' regular home stadium, Wrigley Field. There are many secondary fields at the park, most of which are training and practice fields.

With a capacity of 15,000, Sloan Park is the largest spring training stadium by capacity in Major League Baseball, surpassing Camelback Ranch in Glendale (coincidentally, spring training home of the Cubs' in-city rival the Chicago White Sox) by 2,000 seats.
Formerly known as Cubs Park, on January 8, 2015, it was announced that Sloan Valve Company had signed a naming-rights deal to the ballpark, giving it its current Sloan Park name.

The stadium is currently the newest stadium in the Cactus League. While it is home to these spring training games, it has also hosted some youth tournaments.

  • This is a very nice field with all the amenities of a major ballpark. We were there for the Cubs vs. Padres Spring Training game. The facilities were very nice and the people who worked at the field.....  more »
  • So glad that we were able to see our Chicago Cubs spring training games. Loved watching them. Nice, clean park. Parking was very easy and not a hard walk. Really enjoyed this place.  more »

  • Great ball park! Chicago fans are ENTHUSIASTIC. The only downside is parking. Always have to park far away in one of the grass/dirt lots and walk about half-mile to the stadium. I do really appreciate the close proximity of the park to two major freeways and a whole bunch of restaurants. Makes for a smooth evening with several thousand other people.
  • Sloan Park is like a mini Wrigley Field. I'm not from Chicago but it had a real Chicago feel to it and the crowd was definitely partisan Cubs - perhaps a bit more relaxed. The only drawback to the stadium is that it's a bit of a drive east of Phoenix. The other ballparks are more centrally located. But don't let that stop you from enjoying Chicago while in Phoenix!
