The Sandcastle is home to the Atlantic Leagues' Atlantic City Surf. This park was one of the first in the AL and set the model for the others that followed. It's pretty much the basic templete. "Box" seats fill the lower seating bowl, while The "reserved" seats fill the upper bowl. Above the upper bowl are the Sky boxes. The playing field itself is below street level. You have to climb up a lot of stairs to get to the main concourse. The concourse is open and spacious with several concession stands and a Team Store. The food is pretty much standard fare.
Stadium Rating : B
2006 Update : The naming rights to the park were sold and it is now called Bernie Robbins Stadium.
