VALLEYWIDE -- Spring Training can be fun for the whole family, and the Cactus League ballparks are designed with that in mind.

At Salt River Fields, home of the Arizona Diamondbacks, there is a mini-replica of Chase Field for kids.

Surprise Stadium has a carousel for kids and at Goodyear Ballpark, there is a kids zone.

Most stadiums have a similar area for kids and most let kids run the bases after certain spring training games.

At Riverside Park, adjacent to the new spring training home of the Chicago Cubs, there is a climbing wall and a splash pad. The nearby lake is even stocked with fish.
