Phase 2 of renovations at State College Area School District’s Memorial Field created new home bleachers with additional seats and locker rooms beneath them. There are also improved restrooms and entrances, a concession plaza, a concourse linking the home and away sides, and better emergency access to the field. Work included a memorial parklet at the field to recognize State High alumni who died while serving in the military. The concession plaza was built on the foundation of the former school and administrative building at Nittany Avenue. The basement was renovated for Memorial Field’s concession plaza. A new elevator connects parking lot entry, lower level, and concourse level.
Memorial Field now has about 4000 stadium seats. A 450 SF press box sits at the top of the stands.
