Tailgate Station FAQ
What is a tailgate park?
A tailgate park reduces your hassles and makes gameday even more fun. It's similar to a gated subdivision, You purchase your lot, then have access to the common areas, while feeling secure within the surrounding fencing. A tailgate park provides you the same benefits, plus many other features specific to enjoying your time before and after the games.
You can purchase a parking space inside a gated "community" and truly enjoy the game day experience. Drive directly to your numbered parking space, and begin the pregame festivities. Climate-controlled restrooms, children's play area, food preparation area, gameday security, and a live band are just a sample of the amenities you will find at the tailgate park.
Finally a tailgate park is only as good as it's location. Tailgate Station is only 7/10 mile from the stadium, usually a 10-15 minute walk, however you can always take one of the luxury shuttles to/from the game. Shuttle service to TailGAte Station begins service back to TailGAte Station at halftime.
You never knew tailgating could be so much fun and free from worry!
