Presenting an antiquated design, brick facade, and a grass seating berm, the Ballpark reminds fans of the days of yesteryear and preserves all of the wonderful tradition baseballs have to offer.
The brilliant lines of sight capture the action up-close while providing fans with comfortable seating and easy access to concessions and restrooms. 121 Financial Ballpark poses on a little more than 9 acres and contains a 112,000-square-foot field, 12 luxury skyboxes, four sky decks, a large scoreboard and videoboard, a playground, and the knuckle, a special nine-foot-high pile for seating at the left-field corner.
Moreover, six portable kiosk locations, six concession stands, three dressing rooms, a media room, a weight room, and a kitchen, the ballpark also features a place for players to practice indoors.

“Love this place. We’ve enjoyed games here and now a movie. Always family friendly. I still remember years ago I was a nursing mom and they said we could use a private office if I needed one. Always quick to respond to messages too. Thank you for the email about movie night. We loved it and I wouldn’t have known about it without the email! You guys should do them more. Felt totally safe last night too. No one else was even in our section!” – Leslie G.

TIAA Bank Field
TIAA Bank Field was renamed from the name EverBank on June 4, 2018. The Jaguars’ home arena has undergone important changes and upgrades in its 22-year history. But as many latest buildings and designs have come on the internet around the NFL, Jacksonville is still able to pride one of the most fan-friendly and technologically sophisticated stadiums in the league.
Earlier named as Jacksonville Municipal Stadium, the place of the Jaguars got a modern name on the eve of the 2010 training camp, when EverBank Financial Corp and the Jaguars presented EverBank Field on July 27, 2010. The coalition included a five-year naming rights agreement, which was prolonged by another 10 years in 2014. EverBank Field became the noble home of the world’s largest in-stadium video boards in 2014.
At 362 feet wide and 60 feet high, the two gigantic end zone displays are wider than the length of a football field and have set the standard for the in-venue visible experience. The restatement of EverBank Field continued in 2016 with a $90 million shared investment by the City of Jacksonville and the Jaguars.

Daily’s Place is the most recent sports and entertainment destination in downtown Jacksonville, Florida. Created in 2017, it sits nearby to TIAA Bank Field, home of the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars. Daily’s Place will house the new 5,500-person capacity amphitheater and 94,000-square foot covered flex field, as well as a magnificent back-of-house artist building. The soon-to-be-iconic supporting structure will reside underneath a roof that covers both venues.
Fabric and steel incorporate more than eighty percent of the design materials for the project. Polytetrafluoroethylene fabric will be hanging from a chain of steel trusses, each spanning 430 feet from the south end zone of the stadium to the southern façade of the flex field. The covered flex field contains a regulation-size football field with over 20 feet of supplementary space around the artificial playing surface allowing for indoor practices by the Jaguars during inclement weather.

“This was my first visit here. I loved it. I was in section 203 row T, which is the last row of the section, & had a great view of the ring area for AEW Dynamite. That was quite the pleasant surprise since we were a good ways back. The place has a great layout so I don’t think there will be a bad seat anywhere. The sound was really good when they were on the mic so I think this place would be good to see a concert.” – Rick H.
James P. Small Park
James P. Small Park is earlier known as Barrs Field, Durkee Field was purchased by the city for $348,000 in 1932. The baseball stadium was built in 1936-1937. Durkee Field was the place for the Negro League and minor league baseball teams. The name of the park altered from Durkee Field to J. P. Small Memorial Park Stadium in July 1980. James P. Small trained and taught at Stanton HS for 33 years, then coached at Raines HS for one year prior to retiring.
He died in 1975. In 1982, the stadium was scheduled for demolition, however, a case was made for its renovation. The project was completed in 1985. Renovations involved structural repairs, a press box, a new roof, and dugouts, paving the parking lot, a new playscape, and lighted fields. Further restoration in 2006 included a small museum.
