First Tennessee Park is a baseball park in downtown Nashville, Tennessee, United States. The home of the Triple-A Nashville Sounds of the Pacific Coast League (PCL), it opened on April 17, 2015, and can seat up to 10,000 people. It replaced the Sounds' former home, Herschel Greer Stadium, where the team played from its founding in 1978 until 2014. It will also serve as the home soccer field for Nashville SC, an expansion team of the United Soccer League which begins play in 2018.Plan to visit First Tennessee Park and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Nashville attractions using our Nashville online vacation builder.
The park was built on the site of the former Sulphur Dell, a minor league ballpark in use from 1870 to 1963. It is located between Third and Fifth Avenues on the east and west (home plate, the pitcher's mound, and second base are directly in line with Fourth Avenue to the stadium's north and south), and between Junior Gilliam Way and Harrison Street on the north and south. The Nashville skyline can be seen from the stadium to the south.
The design of the park incorporates Nashville's musical and baseball heritage and the use of imagery inspired by country music, Sulphur Dell, and Nashville's former baseball players and teams. Its most distinctive feature is its guitar-shaped scoreboard—a successor to the original guitar scoreboard at Greer Stadium. The ballpark's wide concourse wraps entirely around the stadium and provides views of the field from every location. The greenway section connects with two other greenways in the city.

Sit back, enjoy a game, eat and drink. The games are decent and the staff is great! Had to visit the Paramedics and they were very great! more »
We love visiting minor league parks, and this was no exception. We made it our first stop on our vacation to the Smokies. We used Uber to get to the park, and was impressed with the crowd, park, and.... more »
Love the atmosphere of this park. It's not just baseball but the entire atmosphere of the park. Games for the kids, great food and drinks. Not to mention watching the stars of tomorrow playing today. I highly recommend this place for the entire family, guys or girls night out. Fun, Fun, Fun.
Loved it! The minor league stadiums are more focused on community and making you smile than making a buck. This was no exception. I am also fortunate I was able to go on a Tito's Tail Wagging Tuesday where the park celebrates K-9 unit and allows the dogs to come to the park. Very, very enjoyable. And the scoreboard was amazing! With Nashville being country music based, the scoreboard was shaped as a guitar and the frets were the box score.
