Photographers and history buffs will love this place: acres and acres memorial gardens crisscrossed by brick-paved walkways, huge old trees, and incredible stories etched in stone.
Only a couple minutes from downtown, this little gem in the heart of the city has it all: old world charm, Victorian and Gothic monoliths, stunning gardens, and oodles of history.

... executed village that is magical on game days and with a wide variety of special events in the plaza, a fabulous sound stage and a year round calendar of events, this place is more than a sports venue.
From the restaurants right outside the stadium, to good sight lines, to parking, to unique concession offerings, to constant entertainment between innings... this is a top 10 ballpark.

This downtown on-campus classic is small by todays standards, but makes for a fun "campus day" experience for fall football.
