San Francisco, California, United States
At just under 13 acres, Oracle Park (formerly AT&T Park) and its site exemplify the urban ballpark. Fans walk, take Bay ferries, water taxis, light rail, heavy rail and even kayaks to the game. The ballpark has become a friendly face in the reinvented SOMA and Mission Bay neighborhoods, responding in scale and materials that successfully meet both waterfront and street. Recalling the language of the pier building the ballpark replaced, arched portals re-define the “Knothole Gang” experience at a super scale, connecting the game directly to the Bay. Oracle Park has become a landmark destination that makes the most of its connections to the city.
