    Nationals Park, the baseball stadium for the Washington Nationals, opened in 2008. The 41,000-seat state-of-the-art ballpark is located in the South Capitol Street corridor of Washington, DC near the Navy Yard and the Anacostia River. When baseball returned to Washington, DC in 2005 after a 34 year hiatus, the nation's capital made a promise to Major League Baseball to build a new stadium in a desirable location downtown. The construction of Nationals Park began the revitalization of this part of the city. New housing, retail stores, restaurants, parking garages and office space has been built in the neighborhood and will continue to improve the area.

    For details about tickets, food options, and transportation, see A Visitor's Guide to Nationals Park.

    Nationals Park set a new standard for ballpark design using innovative technologies to create a top notch entertainment experience for all. The main concourse offers an almost 360-degree view of the playing field so that fans have a...MORE great view from every part of the stadium. See the following photos and get a glimpse of Nationals Park.
