About the ballpark...
The stadium boasts a capacity of 10,100 and different areas around the ballpark to suit any fans' preference.
The Left Field Building includes 110 foot bar with six open patios overlooking the field on the second story. The third story is The AEP Power Pavilion, an open air rooftop with bleachers reminiscent of Wrigley Field. The Picnic Terrace in left field will offer fans a place to relax and take in a ballgame 325 feet down the line. The Wendy's Hamburger Balconies in right field overlook a 22 foot wall that is only 318 feet down the line. The Tansky Sawmill Toyota Suites that overhang the stands offer yet another option for a fantastic and memorable group outing.

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Written by Andrew Muntz, Green Velvet Sod Farms
I hope this NewScapes finds everyone in good health. The rainy July has given us great growing weather for our customers landscapes. The lawns needed more mowing than normal, but we have no losses due to drought.
Our last member meeting at Franklin Conservatory Park was an excellent meeting location and the food was by far the best this year. The meeting was sponsored by Buckeye Power Sales and Ohio CAT. When you see the people from these two fine businesses, be sure to thank them personally for supporting CLA.
The program was about the new 2 acre children's park, what plantings were planned on and a site preview of the park under construction. We then had a chance to view the Franklin Parks site plantings and the Day Lily planting. Fred Blyth had several beautiful and uncommon day lilys for viewing and sale.
It was great to see several CLA members we have not seen in awhile. I look forward to seeing them and still more members and their employees at our next member meeting at Huntington Park on August 8th.
This meeting is a late-morning meeting for lunch and a tour of the facilities. Special thanks to Ohio CAT for sponsoring this event as well.
The Outdoor Living Tour is coming up on August 19th. This Event is developing into a key event for the Columbus Landscape Association. The event is being promoted by Cancer Charity and making this a must for our members as a low cost way to show off your work to potential customers as well as getting behind a worthwhile charity event. A win – win event for promoting your company's image, cultivating potential customers, and social PR supporting a good public cause.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at Huntington Park for the member meeting!
