Atlanta Designers Network tours Sun Trust Park

Sun Trust Park is a baseball park located in the Atlanta metropolitan area
10 miles northwest of downtown Atlanta in the unincorporated 
community of Cumberland, in Cobb County, Georgia.
Our design group, Atlanta Designers Network use to meet
at the Georgian Club in the Galleria complex. You could say
we watched this ball park grow up!

This year for our June Social we decided we would take 
a tour of the Park! Our first stop as we entered was to get a look 
at this tomahawk made out of Legos! 

When the Braves are playing at home they list their 
starting line up on this board just, as you come into the park.

Our first stop was at the Champion Suite.

I was amazed at the size of the suites. They were not as big as I expected.
This is the lounge area and the entire suite holds 32 people. 
The price was amazing too! 

Our Tour Guide was named Bill. Here he is in the area known 
as the Braves Memorial Garden. 

This is the Rawlings Gold Glove Award

This plaque shows the Braves that have won the Gold Glove Award. 

Behind the bronze statue of "Hammerin Hank Aaron," are stacked 
baseball bats representing the number 755. His 755th home run 
broke Babe Ruth's record. 

This is where they keep the Braves' 1995 World Championship trophy.

In another area of the park is a full size bobble head of Hank Aaron.

This is one of several areas that when closed off are completely
soundproof. This is a consideration for autistic and sound sensitive people 
that might attend a game. It gives them a place to get away from the noise.

How about watching the game behind home plate?

These are the seats behind home plate. Covered up between the seats 
are outdoor televisions, so you can watch the game or another 
 program you might choose. 

This is the dugout. The only place we did not get to go was the locker rooms! 

This is the Memorabilia Store that is located inside the park. 

There are a number of areas that are available to rent. Depending
on the size of the  group, there is a place for everyone 
to watch the game. This is the Coors Light Chophouse. The round 
circles cut into the top are to keep your beverage cold. It is a 
cooling system and will keep your brew at 38 degrees!

These are the pub tables in the Coors Light Chop House.

Also on the same level is the Jim Beam Dugout Lounge.

This is the Delta Sky 360 Club. 

Moving from the bottom to the top, we are now enjoying the view 
from the Press Box. 

At the entrance to the Press Box are these portraits honoring
past Braves Sportscasters. 

Also on the top level is the Xfinity roof top lounge.

If you are waiting for the ball game to start, there are games 
for you to play up here.

Our last stop was at the Infiniti Club Suite.

Placed around the Sun Trust Park are shirts honoring 
former Braves players. This belongs to one of my favorite players! 
He calls Flowery Branch, Georgia home now. When Phil and his lovely wife Nancy, first moved to Flowery Branch, I worked with them on the interior of their home.

We wrapped up our tour by having lunch at the
Yard House! 

We all agreed that this was a great experience!
