Ride The Tide To Harbor Park

Fans can ride The Tide (Virginia's first light rail system) to games, as the Harbor Park Station is located just a few steps from the ballpark. The Tide extends 7.4 miles from the Eastern Virginia Medical Center complex to Newtown Road. Eleven stations provide access to dining, shopping and entertainment as well as the campuses for Norfolk State University and Tidewater Community College (Norfolk). There are five park-and-ride lots where parking is always free.

We encourage fans to utilize The Tide Park and Ride lots at Ballentine Boulevard, Military Highway and Newtown Road. We also suggest fans utilize the parking garages at MacArthur Center and ride the light rail from the MacArthur Square Station to the Harbor Park Station.
