Badia Spices Field Level Zone!I actually don't have a problem with this. As cool as having a pool in the park is, the reality is it won't ever be used. Nobody wants to go in a pool at a game.
I'd like to see the area opened to everyone during the game - you could still have the seats that require tickets, but let people walk down there and hang out and see the game from a different perspective in a standing area behind the seats. Actually - better yet, open those stairs that connect from the promenade to it, and let people go down directly instead of the indirect route you have to take right now after games (down escalators and through hallways).
I wonder if they'll still have unique concession items there? Another "real" bar option would be nice too - I know they have that one in the outfield, but more options are always good.
Call it the "[insert sponsor here] Field Level Zone" or something to that effect.
Good question - with opening day just 20 days away, I don't know. Guess it depends on the amount of change they're going for. Signage is easy to take down. Filling in the pool? I guess maybe it wouldn't take too long? Just throw dirt in it and pour some concrete over? and whatever decorative tiles on top? The question is whether they're planning on making more changes like taking out/reconfiguring the bar or seating or something like that.Will a replacement be in place for this season or is this gonna be another closed off area for now?
They haven't said what it'll be, though.Fer folks with kids, I suspect this is a big development. I've been to the park frequently, but never trod into the dark thrumming cave under the left field bleachers because there's usually a toddler or two connected to my hand. Maybe it was fine family fun under there, but because I had to take a circuitous route and didn't have a guarantee I'd get in with the little ones, was never worth the effort.
