The uniqueness of Citizens Bank Park carries over to the playing field with "Angle." The outfield wall, located between the left-center field power alley and dead center field, angles into the playing field and has heights that taper from 19' to 12' 8". Batted balls hitting the "Angle" are sure to create havoc for outfielders and produce some interesting extra-base hits.
The exterior architecture - comprised primarily of multiple shades of red brick, precast concrete and granite complemented by the green roofs with a copper patina finish - combines the essence of Philadelphia's rich tradition of sports architecture with an unmistakably 21st century style.
Black accent bricks patterned in the shape of baseball diamonds are inlaid across the top of the three primary facades. Additionally, along Pattison Avenue, the black bricks spell the word "Philadelphia" in 12' high letters. The ballpark architecture is a welcome addition to this historic city.
At the four corners of the site, landscaped entrance plazas open the park to the street. Each of these entrance plazas has a distinct character and focus, echoing the City of Philadelphia design plan with its four unique squares. Approaching the entrance plazas, the steel-framed seating bowl and twin light towers flank the primary entrances - which lead to the open-air main concourse and an open view to the playing field.
With the Philadelphia city skyline as the backdrop, the ballpark features bowl-style seating with the playing field scooped out 23 feet below street level. The seating bowl layout is inspired by the classic plans of Baker Bowl and Connie Mack Stadium, former homes of the Phillies. Like Connie Mack Stadium, the upper and lower decks do not correspond exactly in plan. The cantilevered steel structure allows for more open seating areas.
The walk-around, open-air concourses offer a contin-uous, uninterrupted view of the field. Guests can now enjoy the game whether they are in a seat, a concourse, a restaurant, a suite or a club lounge.

To commemorate the site of Veterans Stadium, the Phillies built a monument as an everlasting memorial to veterans.

Surrounding the memorial are seven poles that display the American, Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard and POW/MIA flags. The flags fly year-round.
