The grandstand at Turtle Creek Stadium as seen from center field.

The grandstand resembles a beachside resort, with the pressbox and luxury suites on the top floor.

The lower level of the "resort" is the concourse and features little concession shops like a bar, pizza place and ice cream shop with doors and windows, set up like shops on a beach boardwalk.

The clubhouse sits right next to the grandstand and also resembles a beach condo, with chairs on the balconies for players to relax in.

Open-air party boxes along the top of the concourse features tables and elevated beach chair seating.

A large berm wraps around the entire outfield wall at Turtle Creek Stadium.

A fenced park area sits behind the evergreen batter's eye and gives kids a place to run around during a game.

The bullpens, built into the grandstand in foul territory.

The left field foul pole actually comes down along the short part of the fence leading to the groundskeeper's tunnel, meaning a very small section of the short fence is in play in fair ground.

The scoreboard and outfield wall. The entire playing surface is artificial turf.
