Visiting Citi Field with kids for a Mets game can be a challenge…the ballpark is fairly kid-friendly, but other than Flushing Meadows Corona Park nearby, there’s not much for the kids to do close to a ballpark in the heart of Queens.

But the Mets do acknowledge the kids, so here are some tips to make life easier for the parents…

Learn how you can meet Mr. Met!

Citi Field With Kids, Tip #1) Join The Club. I talked about this in the cheap Mets tickets post on this website, but it’s worth repeating. The Mets Kids Club offers complimentary tickets, ticket offers, and other privileges for the young Mets fan including a scoreboard message.

The paid memberships are worth the price for the better quality offers, but even the free membership includes tickets.

Full disclosure: the guy in the Cardinals jersey is not actually a Cardinals fan…

Citi Field With Kids, Tip #2) Citi Field Fan Fest. Take the kids out to the center field plaza before the game…there’s a bunch of interactive games there, the kids can pose for a photo with Mr. Met and throw a ball to dunk someone wearing an opposing team jersey.

There’s a kids concession area out there with smaller portions and prices, and a kids-themed merchandise shop. And this is the heart of the food court at Citi, so parents can get a box of frites with their Pat LaFrieda steak sandwich too.

Don’t pay ballpark prices for Mets gear and souvenirs!

Order your essential Mets items before you go at, pay far less than you would at the ballpark, AND get free shipping on orders over $25…order your Mets swag today!

Meet Mr. AND Mrs. Met!

Citi Field With Kids, Tip #3) Family Sundays. Sunday is by far the best day to take the kids, with a bunch of activities like face painting and a promo item for the little ones. (Arrive early.) Plus they’re usually day games, so the kids get home at a reasonable hour.

Sundays include kids running the bases (the “Mr. Met Dash”), which is always a popular promotion. Paid fan club memberships include front of the line passes for this.


There’s three helpful tips for parents bringing the kids to Citi Field for a fun day at the Mets game. Stay tuned for more…
