City of Palms Park is a stadium in Fort Myers, Florida primarily used for baseball, although the City of Fort Myers uses the venue for the occasional concert in the West Parking Lot. It served as 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 Boston Red Sox moved their spring training operations into the newly constructed jetBlue Park at Fenway South located on County Highway 876 (Daniels Parkway) in Fort Myers. It is also located very close to Southwest Florida International Airport.
