Barnes Complex Rules & Regulations

Child Safety

Children of all ages are welcome at the Barnes Complex. However, it is of upmost importance that parents and spectators KEEP A CLOSE WATCH ON CHILDREN AT ALL TIMES! There are many dangerous situations that can occur including errant foul balls and over-throws; parking lot and walkway traffic; and possible contact with strangers that might pose a threat to their well-being. Unsupervised children are also more susceptible to problems in the restrooms, on landscaped areas, and areas next to the Big Thompson River. There is a playground across SE 5th Street that is well equipped for children of all ages, but parents are reminded to stay close in contact with their children regardless of their location at the Barnes Complex and in the surrounding areas.

Animal Control

For their own safety and that of Barnes Complex visitors, dogs, cats, and other pets are NOT ALLOWED inside Barnes Complex, directly adjacent to the two North fields in spectator areas, or in the Barnes Batting Cage areas.

There is an exception for recognized (clearly marked/vested) dogs trained to assist visually or hearing impaired individuals. These dogs must be kept under direct supervision, and cleaned up after as necessary.
