Dickey-Stephens Park is a stadium in North Little Rock, Arkansas, USA. It is primarily used for baseball and serves as the home for the Arkansas Travelers of the Texas League. The fixed seat capacity of the ballpark is 5,288 people and with room for 2,500 on the berms. It opened in 2007 as a replacement for Ray Winder Field. Named after four local Arkansas brothers who earned fame and fortune (two in athletics and two in business). The athletes were Baseball Hall of Fame member Bill Dickey and George "Skeeter" Dickey.
The majority of the ballpark's cost - about 83% - was paid for by the public. On August 9, 2005, voters of North Little Rock approved, at a 54.3% rate, a temporary 1% sales tax increase that funded $28 million of the cost from the two years the tax was collected. Another $5.6 million was to be raised from ballpark revenue. On the private side of the ledger, Warren Stephens made a financial contribution of $440,494 and a land donation valued at $6.3 million. Also, the North Little Rock City Beautiful Commission donated $15,000.
The ballpark was designed by HKS, Inc. of Dallas, Texas while the general contractor was a joint venture of Hensel Phelps Construction of Austin, Texas and East-Harding Construction of Little Rock, Arkansas. A groundbreaking ceremony was held on November 30, 2005 and actual construction began on January 26, 2006. The ballpark's construction was completed on March 27, 2007, spaning over a period of 426 days. It opened on April 12, 2007 as the Frisco RoughRiders beat the Travelers 6 to 5 with 7,943 fans in attendance.
