Quick Facts: Rating: 2 baseballs
Lewis and Clark Park, named for the explorers who reached what is now the tri-point of Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota in 1804, is home to the Sioux City Explorers, an original franchise in the re-formed, independent Northern League. Sioux City had seen baseball nearly half a century earlier, with the Soos.

Despite having been built only in 1993, the park does not compare favorably with many of the other Northern League facilities. There are two main seating sections, an upper level and a lower level, both reached from the same central concourse. That, in turn, is reached by walking up a fairly long flight of stairs. Handicapped access is available by elevator, along with access to the press box and the four luxury boxes. All the concessions, with the exception of a single beer stand, are located on the lower level, along with the restrooms, making for an unusually inconvenient trip.

The park is located at the end of a cul-de-sac, adjacent to a highway bypass whose traffic dominates the view. A Soap Box Derby track is also visible just beyond the park.
