Looking from the doorway to the south, across Seventh Street
This is a slightly blurry view of the pavilion in center. It has a quirky shape, but one which is completely consistent with the overall ballpark design. Nice work there. You can also get a glimpse of the greenery which will rise above the fences.
7:42 PM It moves to the left in the image and begins to blossom.
This is the LRT path looking from the ballpark site (behind me) toward downtown. The line currently ends about two blocks up this street. This bridge over I-394 is also being partially rebuilt as part of the ballpark project.

This is the main entry to the Pro Shop. The second entry, located just outside the turnstiles, is indicated by the arrow.
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).
I didn't check the menu too closely, but it looks like all the standard fare is available, and not much of the non-standard stuff.
Standing, standing, standing.
Chef stand and menu in the Carew atrium
This is what it looked like during the first open house in March.
The circulation ramp on Fifth Street is shaping up very quickly.
This is as close as I could get to a pedestrian-eye view of Seventh Street (looking west away from downtown). It's inviting, not imposing, and remarkably dignified.
The official ballpark development area
If you want, you can ask those folks how the game is going -- and even get a little bit of info from the big screen (Grandstand)
The plate marker is just to the left.
Look closely and you'll see limestone on the front of the press box!
Looking through it, you can see the outfield pavilion (upper deck at least).
Actual LRT tracks are now in the street, and buses now pass over them before entering the transit hub.

This is as close as I could get to a pedestrian-eye view of the main entrance. This is what you'll see as you enter by coming down Sixth Street.

Hey! An unnumbered gate!
Hardware in the window! (But why are there three trophies? 1924?)
The Ron Coomer corner features a bar.

Yes, son, Memorial Stadium used to be right there, just beyond those gates.
This is the staircase (ramp?) leading up to the trapezoid. Nice flagpole too. You'll be able to find me and Ben McEvers at the base of that flagpole on opening day in 2010!
