The Dodgers had a lot to celebrate this week. In addition to ringing in Opening Day, the baseball team is also feting its stadium’s massive $100 million renovation.
Prior to the first Spring Training game at the stadium, the team not only had to build and finish a new clubhouse, but also reinstall the lower seating level and complete construction on the upper levels as well.
There are seven new buildings and three entrance plazas in the new stadium, as designed by local landscape architect Mia Lehrer.
Los Angeles-based architecture firm Levin and Associates gave the historic park a throwback feel by incorporating materials, colors and patterns from the stadium’s original 1962 construction but updating it with modern amenities.
Those include new concession stands and restrooms, baseball diamond-shaped playgrounds at the upper Reserve entrances and high-definition video boards in a chevron shape.
The team’s clubhouse includes a newly updated locker room, as well as hot tubs, batting cages and a “Quiet Room” inside the training facilities.
WiFi is still to come.
