Rangers Ballpark, located in Arlington, Texas, opened for business on April 1st, 1994. Baseball fans in Texas were
enthusiastic about the new hi-tech ballpark. In fact, Rangers Ballpark is the beautiful focal point and crown jewel in a 270 acre sports and entertainment complex in Arlington, Texas. The complex includes office buildings, parks and recreation space, a 12 acre lake, and youth baseball fields. The stadium and complex is reported to have cost around 190 million dollars.
The entire sports and recreation complex in Arlington is large and sprawling. Texans like their open space, after all. The Rangers Ballpark, however, is small and intimate in comparison to a lot of the modern ballparks. It is similar to Fenway Park, in Boston, Massachusetts, in that it caters to a smaller and more intimate fan experience. The Rangers Ballpark does, however, comfortably seat 49,000 people.
Rangers Ballpark is constructed with granite, brick, and steel. The field is designed asymmetrically. In keeping with a sense of state pride the ballpark also incorporates Texan motifs; there are Lone Star designs on the seat aisles. Whether you are from Texas or just a baseball fan, Rangers Ballpark is a great environment to catch a game.
