There apparently was a media tour at Nationals Park today--check out Barry's blog to see updated photos of the stadium. And has a long description of all the locales seen on the two-hour tour, including the locker room, the club lounges, and more, such as the outfield plaza, which includes the " 'Strike Zone' kids' area, featuring games, activities, picnic tables and a baseball-themed jungle gym for children four and under. Running along the side is a series of shops, including 'Build-a-Prez,' a shop operated by the Build-a-Bear company that will allow kids to construct their own racing president."
UPDATE: Here's the Examiner's the Associated Press's piece on the tour. And there's a second article about the logistics of the new ballpark, addressing issues such as acquiring parking lots and including the news that "The park will usually open 90 minutes before games -- two and a half hours before in the outfield plaza -- but on Opening Day it will open at 3:30 p.m. ET for the 8:05 p.m. game against the Atlanta Braves, giving fans extra time to walk around and see the stadium that Sunday afternoon, as well as deal with any delays that occur."
UPDATE, 2/5: The Baltimore Sun describes the ballpark, as does the Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star. And Tim Lemke posts about the tour on his WashTimes blog.

A thought: With more than a dozen DC public schools closing at the end of this school year, and the Fenty administration stating that they have no intention of selling off the buildings, wouldn't one or two of them make a good location for a school bus parking lot? Or, at the very least, a better location than some of the locations currently being used?

It's a slow morning (when is the world going to do the right thing and make Super Bowl Monday a holiday?), so I'll just take a moment to point to Planetizen's 2008 Top 10 planning, design, and development web sites, where JDLand gets an honorable mention, nudged out by those weasels over at Rethink College Park. (As always, we kid because we love. Nice job, Rob and David!)
