The parking bay structure is now clearly visible

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!

In case you don't know, that's Earl Battey.
Looking back toward the park from just beyond the north end of the Northstar platform.
Though there's nothing there now, you have to believe they'll find a way to add a party deck up there at some point.
