Goodyear snags double honors from Phoenix New Times 2010 Best of Awards



GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (March 30, 2011) Two of Goodyear's points of pride made the "2010 Best Of" list in the Phoenix New Times.


The New Times 2010 Best Place to See a Spring Training Game award went to Goodyear Ballpark. The weekly publication had high praise for the West Valley venue, which is home to two Ohio teams, the Cleveland Indians and the Cincinnati Reds.


"The spirit of cross-state cooperation, along with tons of family-friendly amenities, including a Wiffleball field, to entertain the children, give Goodyear's park a more homey, lived-in feel than other increasingly sterile stadiums," reported the New Times.


Goodyear Skate Park was also selected by New Times as the best in its category. "One of dozens of skate parks in Arizona, the Goodyear Skate Park is a favorite for skaters, thanks to a design that works for both amateurs and pro-skaters," the New Times reported.


Goodyear Ballpark is located at 1933 S. Ballpark Way, just off Estrella Parkway, south of Yuma Road.


Goodyear Skate Park is located at Goodyear Community Park, 3151 N. Litchfield Road, just north of Thomas Road next to the Valley of the Sun YMCA.
