Camelback Ranch has a new road into the facility, as Ballpark Boulevard now extends to Maryland Avenue, creating a smoother commute to the park and better connecting the stadium to Glendale’s Westgate Entertainment District.
Camelback Ranch draws the largest spring training crowds in the West Valley (8,442 per game in 2019) and the fourth-largest in the Valley. To accommodate those crowds, the team and the city of Glendale have created a new way for fans to get to and from the park.
Ballpark Boulevard used to dead-end at the north end of Camelback Ranch, creating only one way for cars to get in and out of the stadium’s parking lots. The road has now been extended 1.8 miles to connect with Maryland Avenue and Bethany Home Road to the north. The ballpark and Glendale city officials expect this to cut down on travel times into and out of the facility.
