New Playground Opens at Oriole Park at Camden Yards

| May 8, 2018 | 2 Comments

Tonight the Orioles will open an expanded Kids’ Corner adjacent to Gate C at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

The centerpiece to Kids’ Corner is The Bird House, a new interactive treehouse activity center and jungle gym built by Daniel’s Wood Land in Paso Robles, California. Built upon the trunk of a 5000 lb., 400-year-old naturally-fallen redwood tree, The Bird House is primarily made of redwood and cedar. It measures approximately 18 ft. wide, 30 ft. long, and 20 ft. tall.  Reclaimed cedar shingles were also used as the roofing material.

The Kids’ Corner also includes an existing moon bounce, skee-ball station, Orioles inflatable throwing station, and over-sized Oriole Bird bobbleheads.

“We are investing in our fans’ day at the ballpark by creating a 360-degree experience by focusing on local food brands, a variety of sizes and prices for the consumer, and innovative kids initiatives,” said Greg Bader, Orioles Vice President, Communications & Marketing, in a press release. “Baseball is the sport that welcomes everyone at every price level, while delivering the top experience back to consumers, and the Orioles and Camden Yards will continue to lead the way in providing this top value experience.”

Concession options in the area have been expanded and now include snowballs, corn dogs, and chicken nuggets. Other ballpark staples are available at Kids’ Corner as well.

For older kids and adults, Kids’ Corner now features several new television monitors to keep fans more closely connected to the on-field action, as well as additional seating, much of which will be located in the shade under tents. The newly-branded “Kid O’s” Team Store next to Gate C will offer a wide selection of kids merchandise that is not available elsewhere.
