Planner Perspective

From the moment we pulled up, I knew Grand Park was going to be different. We had seen pictures and videos before but they certainly do not do this place justice. From the total amount of fields, plentiful parking and beautiful permanent facilities, Grand Park truly is an event director’s dream.

Ryan Long, Director of Events at NXTevents

Grand Park is one of the most impressive baseball venues I have been to in the country. The design of the park makes it easy to run multiple baseball tournaments of all age groups. The staff was very helpful with whatever I needed throughout the tournament. I highly recommend attending a baseball tournament at this facility; you will be impressed.

Justin Hlubeck, Western Tournament Director/Scouting

We were impressed with the facility’s overall look; clean, open fields that are well-maintained, good parking, easy to find, good management team, close proximity to hotels and restaurants with a variety of price points and easy access to Indianapolis airport.
