Tips on coming to Target Field

At Target Field on game days, there are always huge numbers of people coming to see the Minnesota Twins play (and win!) a baseball game. Often, parking (especially handicapped parking) is a big issue at the stadium. Here are a few tips on where people with disabilities should park and get picked up/dropped off:

  • Park in Ramp A, on level 3 if you can. Park on the west end. Take the skyway across into the stadium. Don’t worry about the exclusive club signage on the doors as you get to the end of the skyway; people with disabilities can use the elevators right inside those doors.
  • There is a handicapped pick up/drop off zone on 7th street, right on the plaza in front of Gate 29 at the stadium. There is another pick up/drop off zone located on 7th street, in front of Gate 14, but unless there is a wheelchair ramp on the side of your van, there is NO way for wheelchairs to get onto the sidewalk from there.  There is NO parking in both of these areas. If you get dropped off in front of Gate 29, you can either enter Gate 29 or walk along 7th street until you get to Gate 14, depending on where your seats are.

These are just a few ideas on how people with disabilities can easily access Target Field. If you have any more suggestions, please comment!
