Nationals Park

is located in Washington DC and is the home of the Washington Nationals.  The stadium’s name is a tribute to the early 1900’s park used by the Washington Senators/Nationals, which was called National Park until it was rebuilt and renamed Griffith Stadium. The name was originally a temporary name, as the Nationals owners – the Lerner Family had planned to sell its naming rights. When a strong offer never surfaced, the team chose to stick with Nationals Park.

Nationals Park, Washington DCThe ballpark has approximately 41,000 seats and features 79 suites on three levels surrounding the infield.

The Washington Monument and the Capitol building are visible from the upper decks on the first base side of the field.
