Formerly known as CanWest Global Park, Winnipeg's premier baseball stadium was inaugurated on May 24, 1999. On game days, Shaw Park comes alive as avid baseball fans flood the stands, cheering on their favored team, riveted by the action on the field as the game unfolds. Home of the Winnipeg Goldeneyes, Shaw Park is located in the heart of the city near downtown and is one of the finest baseball facilities in the region. Shaw Park was constructed in three phases, with a final seating capacity of over 7000 and 30 luxury, private skysuites. The ballpark has hosted prestigious tournaments like the 1999 Pan American Games and has all the requisite amenities to qualify as a venue for international baseball championship games.
