First opened in 1912, Fenway Park is a historic icon in the baseball world, as well as in the city of Boston. The stadium is located on the shore of the Charles River in the Fenway-Kenmore neighborhood. Getting there is easiest if you hire a Boston charter bus company.
Fenway Park is the oldest stadium in Major League Baseball and the home of the Boston Red Sox. In 1911, then Red Sox owner John I. Taylor’s father purchased more than 365,000 square feet of property upon which to build a new stadium. The largely steel and concrete park that was then designed by architect James McLaughlin and built on the property wound up costing an estimated $650,000, which is dwarfed by the costs of today’s most modern stadiums.
Fenway Park is iconic for its large green wall in left field. Known affectionately as “The Green Monster,” the wall is unique to Fenway and causes considerable angst in opposing dugouts. For a number of years in the 1960s, Fenway Park was also home to the Boston Patriots, the area’s professional football team now known as the New England Patriots. Over the years, it has also hosted a number of important political events, including a rally by president Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1944.
