The ballpark contains 16 luxury suites
The Appleseed Picnic Pavilion is an old-fashioned ballpark picnic with terraced picnic table seating that wraps around the right field foul pole and extends right down to field level, which accommodates 50-2,500 people
The Treetops Rooftop Party Area resembles the rooftops at Wrigley Field. Entrees and side items are served throughout the game. Groups as small as 50, up to as large as 250, can enjoy the bird's eye view of all the action.
Located atop the outfield wall in left field is the Home Run Porch. Complete with food rails in front of each seat, wider, more comfortable padded seats and an overhead trellis, this section accommodates 20-160 guests.
The park contains lawn seating sections. In 2017, a section of the lawn seating was dedicated to Frederick Waldor, a prominent Fort Wayne native and early investor in the stadium.
A one-of-a-kind luxury suite equipped with a bar and concessions named the 400 club opened in April 2013. The $800,000 private-investment stands alone as the only such seating area in the minor leagues; located in the "batters eye" (section of a ball park usually blocked off and plain so as not to distract the current batter).
