The Orange Bowl was a piece of Miami’s history that stood in the heart of Little Havana for more than 60 years. Now, Marlins Park has replaced the Orange Bowl and in the midst of old apartment buildings and businesses stands the modern structure of the Marlins Park.

After 33 months of construction, the ballpark officially opened for the Marlins opening day game against the St. Louis Cardinals on April 4, 2012.

The Miami Marlins baseball-only, eco-friendly LEED certified gold park seats more than 37,000 fans. Amenities include a state-of-the-art retractable roof for climate control, a pool area at The Clevelander located on the Field Level next to the Bullpen, restaurant-style concessions, and closer seating to the field with an open 360-degree Promenade Level that gives fans a live view of the game no matter where they are.

Things Not To Miss
There is more to see at the stadium other than the game. The Marlins Park features two 450 gallon aquariums located behind home plate and four special arts projects selected by Miami-Dade County Art in Public Places.

One of the art projects include a colorful Home Run Feature located just behind the wall in left centerfield. The sculpture lights up every time the Marlins score a homerun and displays Marlins leaping out of the water with the sun rotating and seagulls flapping their wings. Other projects include an Orange Bowl tribute with 10-foot high reproductions of the letters that spelled out “Miami Orange Bowl” in the old stadium, mosaic plaza walkways, and four 200-feet high LED columns that create a flickering, sparkling light effect that appears and disappears in subtle rhythms.

There is also a Bobblehead Museum display on the Promenade Level that features a collection of almost 700 bobbleheads including current and former Marlins players, baseball mascots, and players throughout Major League Baseball history. The entire structure moves slightly to keep the heads bobbling.
