    Rogers Centre

    See the Toronto Blue Jays play ball

    • Families
    • Adventure

    Rogers Centre is one of the most unique and unusual baseball stadiums around and is the proud home of the Toronto Blue Jays MLB franchise. The arena is one of the largest baseball stadiums in the entire world and offers a round, symmetrical venue that places it outside of other ballparks, which tend to be more intimate and feature unique quirks. It's also unusual for its artificial turf play surface. All of this makes it an interesting place to see a ball game.

    The stadium, originally called the SkyDome when it opened 30 years ago, was the first to have a retractable dome and the first to have a built-in hotel. It's only a 10-minute drive from city centre.
