The Lehigh Valley IronPigs (Class AAA; International League) are rolling out yet another improvement at Coca-Cola Park, as the team has unveiled a redesigned picnic patio.
The Berks Foods Picnic Patio is being enhanced in several areas. All of the seats will now be rotated toward the field, while drink rails, chairbacks, and arm rests will be added as part of the renovation. Changes to the Berks Foods Picnic Patio will be completed before the 2017 season.
Upon completion, the newly designed area will include only forward-facing mesh swivel seats and high-top chairs – as opposed to picnic tables — along with extra-wide drink rail counters to allow for a more desirable viewing and dining option. The new mesh swivel seats offer superior comfort and breathability.
“The Berks Foods Picnic Patio is the largest hospitality venue at Coca-Cola Park and this re-design will make it among the most popular locations within the ballpark,” remarked IronPigs President and General Manager Kurt Landes. “By replacing picnic tables with comfortable forward-facing seats, the Berks Foods Picnic Patio becomes the ideal setting for a group gathering, large or small.”
Groups of 20 or more (up to 500) can book seating in this newly-renovated area immediately for $28 per person. Each person includes a game ticket and the following:
- Two and a half hour all-you-can-eat buffet featuring a ballpark-style menu.
- Unlimited soft drinks through the middle of the 8th inning.
- In-game group recognition on the IronPigs state-of-the-art videoboard (debuting in 2017)
- “Pig in a Poke” group raffle. The IronPigs will be giving away a prize pack exclusively to a group ticket holder every game!
- Parking pass and gift for the group leader.
- Opportunity for a member of your group to throw out a Ceremonial First Pitch.
- Adult beverages available for purchase.
To book the Berks Foods Picnic Patio today for any 2017 home game or to find out more information, please call (610) 841-PIGS (7447) or visit Coca-Coca-Cola Park during normal business hours (Monday–Friday; 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.). Individual game tickets for this newly-renovated area will be available once individual game tickets go on sale to the general public next March, based on availability. Coca-Cola Park’s other award-winning hospitality areas, including the PPL Picnic Patio, BSI Dugout Suites, PenTeleData Party Porches, the Tiki Terrace & Oasis and the IronPigs’ Team Suites, are also on sale now.
This is the fourth significant seating project addition in the last six years at Coca-Cola Park, following the introduction of the “Pig Pen” in 2015, the “Hot Corner” and “Bacon Strip” in 2013 and the debut of the Tiki Terrace & Oasis in 2012. This off-season includes the largest re-investments in franchise history with the addition of a series of new state-of-the-art HD videoboards, a brand-new and expanded safety net behind home plate and the Berks Foods Picnic Patio renovation.
