The bulk of the seating at Classic Park is made up of box seats, which is ideal if you're not a fan of bleachers. While some Minor League parks are mostly bleachers, the opposite is true here. Box seats wrap almost from foul pole to foul pole and are on section high. Sections 108 through 113 are protected by netting. All the box seats in the ballpark have cup holders.

The number of suites at Classic Park is notable. While many MiLB parks have around a half-dozen suites, Classic Park is loaded with 20 of them, all on the second level and from the shallow right field to shallow left field. There are party decks on each end of the suite level.

A three-sectioned set of bleachers sits directly behind the fence in left field, beginning just inside fair territory. These are the only bleachers in the park and are a cost-effective alternative to sitting in the box seats. On the center field-side of the bleachers is one of Classic Park's two Lawn Seats sections, which are spacious and perfect for families. The other Lawn Seats section is behind the fence in straightaway right. Additionally, there's a small, grassy area on the foul pole side of the bleachers.

There are two group picnic areas, diagonally facing the field. The News-Herald Picnic Plaza sits down the third base line behind sections 118, 119 and 120, while the Picnic Terrace is behind sections 101, 102 and 103. These areas are roped off when booked by a private group, but are otherwise open.

If you're visiting Classic Park with kids, the bleachers or the lawn in left field are arguably your best option. The park has a large kids' area directly behind these sections, which will allow you to keep an eye on your children while still enjoying the game.
