This year's construction project will include replacing the physical seats within the primary seating bowl utilizing the stadium's original color palette; repairing and conducting maintenance on the concrete and structure within the seating bowl area; and introducing a traditional yet modern "box" seat concept within the baseline seating area.

In an effort to continuously improve the fan experience at Dodger Stadium, the Dodgers recently broke ground on a new park and picnic area outside Dodger Stadiumís Loge Level. The project will be ready for public access by Opening Day, and includes:
  • Multiple seating areas with tables
  • Food and beverage areas
  • 20 palm trees
  • Five (5) 75-80-year old mature olive trees
  • Water fountain element
  • Other plantings indigenous to Dodger Stadium historic landscaping
Please check back for frequent photo gallery updates on the progress of this new and exciting project.
