Visit a Historic Ball Park at Wrigley Field

by Leap on April 15, 2024 Chicago

Wrigley Field, located in Chicago, is one of the most iconic baseball stadiums in the world — serving as the home of the Chicago Cubs team. But beyond its role as a baseball stadium, Wrigley Field also hosts huge concerts. Let's jump into all of the important details about this venue!

Overview of Wrigley Field

Wrigley Field, a national historic landmark on the North Side of Chicago, IL, opened in 1914 and is easily recognized for its ivy-covered brick wall. It's one of the oldest ballparks in the United States (second to Fenway Park in Boston). William Wrigley Jr. of the Wrigley Company acquired the Cubs in 1921. The field was known as Cubs Park from 1920 to 1926 before it was renamed Wrigley Field in 1927. The stadium currently seats about 41,000 people.

In addition to Cubs games, Wrigley Field welcomes legendary musical acts. In summer 2024 you can catch acts such as:

Look for statues of these Cubs legends:

  • Broadcaster Harry Caray
  • Ernie Banks
  • Billy Williams
  • Ron Santo
  • Fergie Jenkins

Where Is Wrigley Field Located?

Wrigley Field is located at 1060 West Addison Street, Chicago, IL. The stadium is located in the primarily residential neighborhood of Wrigleyville (in the Lakeview area) without large parking lots. There are several ways to arrive at Wrigley Field.

Wrigley Field Arrival Information — Parking and Transportation

Parking options around Wrigley Field are limited. The field does not have large lots, but the lots they do have should be easy to get in and out of. The lots are cashless. You can reserve your parking in advance with SpotHero. Fans are encouraged to use public transportation. The Cubs offer free remote parking for night and weekend games at 3900 N. Rockwell St. The remote lot includes a free shuttle service to and from Wrigley Field.

Tailgating is not allowed in the Chicago Cubs-operated parking lots. The Chicago Police Department strictly enforces open alcohol container laws.

Rideshare drop-off and pick-up for all events are subject to a geo-fence around Wrigley Field. Pick-up locations are at Addison Street between Broadway and Halsted Street, and at Irving Park Road between Clark Street and Seminary Avenue.

Transportation Hubs, Buses and Trains

You can get to Wrigley Field easily by CTA Public Transportation rail or bus from transportation hubs in Chicago, such as:

  • LaSalle St. Station
  • Midway Airport
  • Ogilvie Transportation Center
  • O'Hare Airport
  • Union Station

The Red Line, Yellow Line and Purple Line Express have convenient Park & Ride options.

Bicycle

You can ride your bike to a Cubs game! The Cubs offer a free bike valet service for Cubs home games. It's in the alley just east of the main entrance to the CTA Red Line stop on Addison Street. The valet opens three hours before a regular season game's start time and closes one hour after it ends. You can bring your bicycle helmet into the park and store it under your seat.

Wrigley Field Seating

The stadium has different seating levels for all budgets. You can join the hecklers and "Bleacher Bums" in the bleacher section for a unique experience. Or select the best seats in terms of view (in the upper rows of the Field Box 100 level sections). Some more affordable seats — but still with a great view — can be found in the Upper Box (infield) 308L-326R. You might think you want shade under the overhang, but it can get pretty hot under there.
