Nationals Park is the newest addition to DC area sports arenas, and this 40,000+ seat venue is only the start of what will be a huge transition in the Navy Yard area.

Nationals Park is the official new home of the Washington Nationals, and in it’s short life span so far has already seen several concerts come through the area.

Directions & Parking

The Metrorail system is, by far, the easiest way to get to Nationals Park. Just hop on anywhere along the Metro system and follow the route to the Navy Yard Station. That’s it, you’re there!

If you prefer to drive yourself, there are multiple parking options around the ballpark. Some of the lots require a bit of walking, but nothing is more than a 10-15 minute walk. And the lots and garages are maintained by professionals making it a truly easy experience. Parking is not free, but to make things easier you can actually purchase your parking in advance online and guarantee your spot! Purchase is available for single games or you can get a full season pass.

Tickets for single games, partial season plans, or full season tickets can be purchased through the National’s website here.

One thing that you can’t pass up when coming to Nationals Park is the amazing food options! This was clearly a top priority when building the stadium, and there’s something for everyone. For a full list of options, visit the Concessions page of their website here.

    Regarding food, if you can handle spicy sausages and that’s your thing, definitely try the Ben’s Chili Half Smoke All the Way. Best thing I have ever eaten in a ballpark. Save the Shake Shack for when you go to Citi Field, for heaven’s sake.
