Emergency access as viewed from outside the ballpark
Directly above gate 6 "Oliva" on the Club level.
The completed promenade

This is the revised version of the center field pavilion (without the restaurant). It looks like there are no seats, just some ledges for people to sit on. It reminds me of the seating on the "bridge" which sticks out of the new Guthrie Theater. Anything which lands in the trees will presumably be a home run, so the "411" sign is apparently just for fun.

Spring of 1982 (click to enlarge greatly -- can you pick out Kent Hrbek?)
