Birth of a Ballpark

A virtual Pacific Bell Park

Before the real Pacific Bell Park was built, the designers constructed a virtual ballpark using 3D software. Here is an interactive look at perspectives on the new facility.

Note: It may take a moment for each image to load. Images will remain in place unless your cursor crosses another arrow.

You can also go the Giants' Seat View Generator for more images, panoramas and animated fly-ins.

NOTE: These views were generated in August, 1998. While reflective of the overall design of the park they may not show the exact views or details of the finished ballpark.
