Located in the revitalized downtown Phoenix area, Chase Field is one block east of US Airways Center, home of the Phoenix Suns NBA basketball team, the Phoenix Mercury WNBA basketball team, and the Phoenix Roadrunners hockey team. The ballpark is bounded by Jefferson Street on the north, Fourth Street on the west and Seventh Street on the east. Easiest freeway access is by taking the Seventh Street exit from either I-10 (turn south) or I-17 (turn north. The ballpark is strategically located to several downtown venues such as the Phoenix Civic Plaza, Symphony Hall, Arizona Science Center and the Arizona Center. This centralized location provides opportunities for fans and spectators to enjoy a variety of activities before and after each home game.
To accommodate the expected pedestrian flow pattern, the Ballpark is located as far south and east on the site as is practical to allow plenty of area to the north and west. With an approximate elevation of 1,100 feet, Chase Field is the second highest facility in the majors, trailing only Coors Field in Denver. Scientists have estimated a fly ball will travel about 7 feet further for every 1,000 feet of altitude making Chase Field more of a hitter's park.
Links to detailed maps of the Phoenix freeway system, suggested inbound traffic routes, and suggested outbound traffic routes have been provided to help you plan your trip to Chase Field. As a general rule, traffic is lighter using Interstate 17 and exiting on either the Seventh Avenue or Seventh Street exits. As always, it is recommended you listen to local radio traffic bulletins to help guide your travel plans.
