Space Coast Stadium is a baseball stadium that was completed prior to the 1994 season as part of a development project at Viera, Florida, and as part of a deal to bring spring training for the (then new) Florida Marlins to the area.

In 2002, as part of an agreement involving the sale of the Montreal Expos by Jeffrey Loria, the Marlins swapped training sites with the Expos, who had been training in Jupiter, Florida. The Expos held two seasons of training at Space Coast in 2003 and 2004 before their reformation as the Washington Nationals, who have conducted training there since their inaugural season in 2005.

It is also the home of the Brevard County Manatees minor league baseball franchise. In 2008, the Florida State League All Star Game returned to Space Coast Stadium for the first time in 12 years, with the West Division prevailing over the East Division with a score of 9-3.

Occasionally, the Gulf Coast League Nationals also play their home games in this park.

On Saturday October 23, 2004 President George W. Bush held one of his final campaign rallies for the 2004 Presidential Election.
