Nice ball park. Clean and appeared to be well managed. Close to bars and eating places. We did not eat at park but the food looked good. Always some entertainment such as kids' contests between innings so our grandson did not get bored.

Minor league baseball at its finest. Principal Park is beautiful and the I-Cubs are fun to watch. Great views of downtown and the Capitol building. Decent prices on food and drinks.
