AT&T Park, San Francisco

AT&T Park, located close to downtown San Francisco, has been the home of the Giants baseball team since 2000. AT&T Park was constructed to replace aging Candlestick Park as San Francisco’s home stadium. The design of AT&T Park is classic urban ballpark with an old-time feel, inspired by Wrigley Field and Fenway Park, and modeled after Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Jacobs Field and Coors Field. AT&T Park is perched on the edge of San Francisco Bay, facing east towards Oakland. Giants slugger Barry Bonds has had more than a few “splash hits”, homeruns that fly over the wall of AT&T Park and land in the waters of McCovey Cove. The public entrance to AT&T Park has a nine-foot statue honoring the great ball player Willie Mays, while inside AT&T Park, an 80-foot tall Coca-Cola bottle boasts slides for kids of all ages to play on. The world’s largest baseball glove also makes its home inside AT&T Park. The San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridge can be seen from many of the seats inside AT&T Park. Outside of AT&T Park, fans can stroll along the Giants History walk that curves along the San Francisco Bay to McCovey Point and China Basin Park. The site of AT&T Park was open water until the 1906 earthquake rocked San Francisco and a portion of the San Francisco Bay was filled in with rubble from other parts of the city. Next to China Basin Park, younger Giants' fans try to make “splash hits” from Barry Bonds Junior Giants Field, a T-ball park overlooking AT&T Park and McCovey Cove. Public transportation on San Francisco’s MUNI light rail system runs from downtown San Francisco to AT&T Park roughly every 15 minutes, making the park easily accessible for all baseball fans.
