Werner Park Party PatioThe official ground breaking ceremony took place on September 30 for the new Party Patio at Werner Park.  The patio located in the outfield concourse will feature Watkins product and is sponsored by Sun Valley Landscaping.  The new area will offer fans the opportunity to enjoy the game as if they’re in their own backyard.

The patio will have a three-burner gas fire pit with lounge seating, high-top table seating and space for up to 100 guests.

The area is raised a foot above the regular concourse and higher toward the back to provide a clear view of the ballpark, said Susan Drey, the project’s designer from Sun Valley Landscaping.

The area will be available for rent during games and other events.
