On April 12, 1911 The Cincinnati Reds announced that horse-drawn carriages were no longer allowed at the Palace of the Fans. When the ballpark opened in 1902, there were few autos in the city and space was built to allow those arriving in carriages to park them under the stands. By 1911, that space was taken over by those arriving in autos. The Palace was torn down the following season and Redland Field opened in 1912. A lot was created for 500 cars, which proved to be inadequate immediately. Parking was an issue at Redland/Crosley Field until the ballpark was abandoned in 1970.
