History
City of Palms Park is a stadium located in the downtown area of the City of Fort Myers (www.cityftmyers.com). It is primarily used for baseball, although the City of Fort Myers uses the venue for the occasional concert in the West Parking Lot. This Complex used to be the Spring Training home of the Boston Red Sox from its opening in 1993 to 2011. The stadium was built in 1992 for that purpose and holds 8,000 people. The stadium's name is taken from the City's official nickname. In February 2012, the Red Sox moved their Spring Training operations into the newly constructed jetBlue Park in Fort Myers. In May of 2014, the Lee County BoCC announced Florida SouthWestern State College as the new tennant for the Men's Baseball & Women's Softball teams.
