Infield at the Zoo

Omaha, Nebraska

Vireo embraced the community in a sometimes difficult discussion and design for how to preserve a little bit of the past while moving forward with the demolition of the historic Rosenblatt Stadium and the integration of the property into the Henry Doorly Zoo. Infield at the Zoo creates a Little League-sized baseball field that preserved the stadium's home plate in bronze, recreated the base paths and reused some of the original stadium seating. An entry pavilion was also created that emulated the look and feel of Rosenblatt Stadium, forever cementing the memories of this historic landmark into the community.
