A Red Sox game at Fenway Park with kids is an amazing experience. There is so much for children to see and do both inside and outside the park.

You might even catch a special game day like Star Wars Day if you’re lucky.

The general tips and tricks for seeing a Red Sox game at Fenway also apply to kids, with a few extra tips to remember when you’re bringing young children to a game.

Fenway Park with Kids

Once you arrive at Fenway Park, you will immediately see all the fun there is to have before you even enter the park.

Head to Jersey Street and Gate A to find the stilt walker who throws balls to the kids, visit the gift shops for a hat and jersey for the game, and enjoy the bustle of a great day at Fenway Park.

Is There a Child Discount at Fenway Park?

No, a discounted ticket price isn’t available for children at Fenway, but children under two are free if they sit on a ticketed guest’s lap.

Can You Bring a Diaper Bag into Fenway?

Yes, you can bring a diaper bag into the park. Diaper bags will be searched at the gate just like any other bag or purse, so be sure only to carry the essentials needed to care for your child.

Are Strollers Allowed Inside Fenway Park?

You can bring a small stroller inside Fenway Park for the littlest Red Sox fans, as long as they can fold up and be stowed at or under your seat.

A lightweight umbrella stroller is your best bet because Fenway is an old park and isn’t known for its spacious seating areas.

Family Restrooms

Using a family restroom is much easier when bringing children to a crowded place. Especially if you have children of varied ages and genders.

Thankfully, Fenway Park has five family restrooms available for your convenience.

They can be found in these locations:

  • Kids Concourse near Wally and Tessy’s bench
  • Customer Service booth at Gate E
  • Next to the elevator in the Big Concourse
  • Under Pavilion Box 14
  • On top of Pavilion Box 2

Where is the Kids Concourse at Fenway?

The Kids Concourse is located at Gate K (for kids). You can find Gate K easily by looking for the Teammates statue, which is at the corner of Ipswich and Van Ness streets, between Gates K and B.

Wally’s Clubhouse

Baseball games are long, so if your kids might be starting to get restless between the third and seventh innings, take them down to Wally’s Clubhouse, located in the Champion’s Club on the Kids Concourse.

Younger kids will have a blast with kid-friendly activities and entertainment like a visit from Wally, face painting, a balloon artist, and a beanbag toss.

There are also activities available for toddlers and a Wii for slightly older kids.
