Truist Park’s rank among MLB stadiums

Data: Walk Score; Table: Axios Visuals

Truist Park is literally a walk in the park, compared to most other MLB stadiums.

By the numbers: The Atlanta Braves' home stadium ranks 13 out of 30 MLB stadiums for walkability, a recent analysis shows.

How it works: Walk Score analyzes hundreds of walking routes and nearby amenities to calculate pedestrian friendliness and walkability. Population density and road metrics are also considered.

  • A good Walk Score (above 69) doesn't require a car and reflects how easy it is to walk to a location or use public transportation. A walker's paradise is a score of 90 or above.

What they found: Truist Park received a Walk Score of 71 because it's "very walkable, so most errands can be accomplished on foot," Walk Score reports.

Case in point: 10.3 million visitors spent an average of 206 minutes at The Battery and Truist Park in 2023, according to the Braves at yesterday's Cobb County commission meeting.

  • 83 of the 86 events hosted at Truist Park last year were Braves games.
  • 3.2 million fans attended games at Truist Park last year

Stop by: The Braves play the New York Mets on Wednesday at 7:20pm.
