Jackie Robinson Stadium is a ballpark located in Daytona Beach, Florida. It is the home stadium of the Daytona Tortugas of the Florida State League.

Formerly called "City Island Park", it was the site of Jackie Robinson's debut in organized baseball, as a member of the International League's Montreal Royals against the Brooklyn Dodgers, in a spring training exhibition on March 17, 1946. The park, which has been the site of spring training for various major league clubs over the years, was renamed in Robinson's honor in 1990.
