The Fifth Street side is pretty busy. There's a small street entrance to the B ramp, then ticket booths and an entrance gate, a rare exterior section not covered in limestone, the wooden screen covering the circulation ramps, the administration building, and finally (just out of view) the interface with Northstar. All of that sits behind the LRT action. How pedestrians will interact with this side of the park is a great mystery to me. You know that Metro Transit won't be letting them cross the tracks anywhere but at either end of the block...

Which way to the skyway? Really??
Love the red flowers -- just like the original concept drawings. That NEVER happens.
I still counted 11 flag poles...
Do you need to know the score?
This would be a beautiful streetscape if there were ANY people.

The reverse angle shows that the signage will only partially obscure views from the top of the ramp. The wall is pretty high up there, so you'll need something to stand on, but it appears that this is one of the so-called "knotholes".
This was from January 19, 2007, when it looked like wonderful things might never happen here.
Town Ball Tavern balcony
Many people will approace the park from this direction and it's a pretty great first glimpse. It features all the design elements in modestly condensed form, and still manages to look like a ballpark (instead of something else).
doors are located near the escalators.
