      It’s Spring Training time in Greater Phoenix once again!

      One of the many great reasons to visit Phoenix is the Cactus League. Fifteen Major League baseball teams come to Arizona each Spring and participate in training camp at a variety of locations in and around Greater Phoenix.

      Scottsdale Stadium is one of the older venues in the Cactus League but it’s consistently considered one of the best. While there are some minor accessibility challenges, we think it’s well worth the effort. The weather is generally fantastic in the Valley of the Sun during Spring Training and many, many people from around the country converge on Phoenix to take in games.

      In general, parking at Scottsdale Stadium can be challenging given that it is located in the heart of Scottsdale itself. There is a lot near Gate A (which is on the northwest side of the stadium) which is designated as the accessible lot. We had little trouble finding the lot near Gate A and only had to show our state parking placard to gain entrance. However, there are very few in the way of actual accessible parking spots. We were encouraged by the friendly parking attendant to find any spot available. We would strongly recommend arriving early. There were plenty of spots still available in the lot and we were able to give ourselves a little bit of distance between other vehicles in order to comfortably exit our ride.

      From where we parked to Gate A was definitely less than 100 yards and relatively flat. There were metal detectors at the gate so prepared to be wanded down upon entering.

      There are quite a few steps beyond Gate A so we were directed to an elevator in the building adjacent the gate. This elevator will take you up to the upper outfield section of the stadium. Once on the upper level there is a restroom next to the elevator exit. This restroom has an accessible stall although all of the restrooms with accessible stalls in the stadium were fairly crowded throughout the game.

      In terms of an accessible restroom, your best bet is probably going to be the family restroom that is near the first aid station behind the first base line seating on the main concourse. The family restroom is not marked very well but it’s there.

      From the upper outfield section of the stadium you’ll need to make your way to another elevator that’s just beyond right field in order to access the main concourse level. There are lots of food and drink vendors throughout the stadium and for the most part we had little trouble making our way through the stadium to get where we needed to go.

      Once you’ll taken the elevator down to the main concourse beyond right field there is a nice wide walkway that leads down along the first base line to the main seating areas. There are restrooms located on the main concourse behind home plate.

      Our accessible seating was right behind home plate and we had no trouble whatsoever getting to our seats. The accessible seating was a box in front of the main walkway that was quite spacious. We had plenty of room to relax and enjoy the game. We had an outstanding view of the field and the stadium.

      There are concessions located throughout the stadium including near the area where we were seated. In addition, there are a large number of vendors walking the aisles so you probably don’t have to ever leave your seat if you don’t want to.

      Accessible seating is located in the following sections: 101-106, 119-122, 129-130.
