Opened in 2001, the Reading Health System Character Pool Party is an 1000 square foot area located just behind the right field wall with picnic table seating that fits up to 300 guests. Along with a pool that's kept heated at 87 degrees all season long, the area features high-definition flat-screen televisions throughout the area as well as a private bar and private locker rooms. Kids in the area received unlimited access to the nearby Capital BlueCross "Live Fearless" Phunland Area. All guests of the pool area also receive a 2 ½ hour all-you-can-eat buffet.

In 2013, the area relaunched as the Character Pool Party, offering the ultimate family experience at FirstEnergy Stadium. Every game, Fightins characters like the Crazy Hot Dog Vendor, Mascot Band, and Baseballtown Tooth Fairy visit the area to take photos and sign autographs for kids. 

Through its 14 seasons at FirstEnergy Stadium, the Reading Health System has earned numerous accolades across the region, including "Best of Philly-New Attraction for Kids" by Philadelphia Magazine. It has also been one of the aspects of the ballpark that has led to America's Classic Ballpark being named as "Best Family Destination" in 2012 by Berks County Living during its annual "Best of Berks" series and the Top Minor League Baseball destination in all of Pennsylvania according to Stadium Journey.
