According to the Los Angeles Times, the Los Angeles Dodgers have announced plans for a $100 million renovation project this offseason that will create a new center field plaza, elevators, and bridges that will connect the outfield pavilions to the rest of the stadium. This will allow people to walk 360 degrees around the stadium for the first time.

The new centerfield plaza will comprise two acres and include food options, a beer garden, two sports bars, a children’s play area, and space for live music. Fans will be able to watch the game from the plaza via standing positions around the seating areas and from above a new batter’s eye. Elevators and escalators located in the left and right field plazas will allow all spectators access to the new central plaza, regardless of ticket location.

 

 

New restrooms, enclosed bars with views into the bullpens, better seating for individuals with disabilities, and “home run seats” that fill a gap between the outfield wall and the pavilion seats are also part of the renovation project in the left and right field pavilions, and the existing speaker tower will be replaced with a new sound system.

Additionally, a new Sandy Koufax statue will stand alongside a relocated Jackie Robinson statue at the entrance to the centerfield plaza. The project, which the Dodgers are calling the stadium’s “front door,” is slated for completion before the 2020 season begins.
