Helpful Planning Tips for Everyone
Braves Country starts in Cumberland, and we have helpful tips for fans traveling to the game, professionals working or living here, and the area’s employers.
Ways to Prepare for Gameday
Cobb Commute offers a look at live traffic camera feeds, shows color-coded traffic speeds on major road ways, and information on construction. The site’s information is sent from Cobb County DOT’s Transportation Management Center.
Not only do the Braves play here, but Cumberland is the stage for the Atlanta Opera and the Atlanta Ballet. Cumberland is home to the Cobb Galleria Centre, the Cobb Performing Arts Centre, and the Coca-Cola Roxy, which each have their own schedule of events.
The Braves have three things for you to remember regarding your game day plan at SunTrust: purchase your tickets in advance, buy your parking in advance, and trust the Waze app to get you to the park.
The Braves have secured 14,000 parking spots for SunTrust Park. Buy your parking pass in advance and plug in the address to Waze to get turn-by-turn directions to your lot. Another pro tip: choose a parking lot that’s in the same direction that you’re accessing the ballpark. As an example, if you’ll be arriving at the ballpark from the east side, select one of the Braves East lots.
We want you to have the best gameday experience possible.
