GET THERE LIKE A LOCAL
Most Atlanta Braves fans know you can prepay to park in a parking deck, park in a lot that is within walking distance, or use a rideshare app, but locals recommend CobbLinc as a quick and easy way to get to Truist Park. The free Cumberland Circulator is perfect for visitors to the area with drop off locations at The Battery Atlanta. CobbLinc’s other routes of transportation connect all areas of Cobb County and downtown Atlanta with Truist Park. Check out more forms of transportation to experience game day with the Braves here.
Home Run Tip:
Fans who park in a Battery Atlanta parking deck for longer than 2 hours on game day will be charged up to $50. However, you can receive validation by spending a minimum of $50 among The Battery Atlanta tenants – just ask the merchant or restaurant you purchased from!
EAT LIKE A LOCAL
Explore the local area on game days by grabbing a bite to eat at a restaurant in the greater Cumberland area like Cinco, Ray’s on the River, or Dale Murphy’s baseball-themed bar and grille, Murph’s. You can also save some cash by bringing outside food into the stadium. Each ticket holder is allowed to bring one clear, gallon-sized plastic bag of food into the game and one sealed bottle of water! Dining options abound inside Truist Park. Terrapin Taproom and Fox Bros Bar-B-Que is a popular spot to eat at The Battery Atlanta and is also accessible from inside the stadium. Get your brews and bites here to save money on craft beverages and time in concession lines! Download the MLB Ballpark App and get snacks delivered to your seat so you don’t miss any of the action!
Home Run Tip:
Some restaurants at The Battery Atlanta allow reservations on game days! These include C. Ellet’s, EATaliano, Garden & Gun Club, Punch Bowl Social, and Burn by Rocky Patel. Visitors can join the waitlist online for multiple restaurants as well.
EXPERIENCE LIKE A LOCAL
For even more fun, plan your trip around events at The Battery Atlanta or Braves game day promotions. Expect fireworks on Friday nights following the game, bobble heads and other giveaways on special days, and tons of shopping around The Battery Atlanta. There’s plenty to keep visitors and children entertained, including Hope and Will’s Sandlot, a play area with a zip line, rock climbing wall, and carnival games (free on Sundays)! Kids can also borrow a glove from Mizuno for the duration of the game in case they catch a foul ball. Get there early to explore exhibits throughout the stadium that feature Atlanta Braves history, including old uniforms, sculptures, awards, and more. If you’re having trouble getting tickets, set up blankets or chairs on The Plaza Green to watch the Braves on the big screen while you listen to the action live!
