Huntington Park is the home of Columbus’ professional baseball team, the Clippers, the AAA-affiliate of the Cleveland Indians. Its many accolades include being the only two-time winner of Ballpark Digest's Best of the Ballparks Award.

Woven into the fabric of the city, Huntington Park complements nearby Nationwide Arena, adding to the excitement of an already strong entertainment district. Urban plaza entries and outdoor concourse areas surrounding the field provide the facility with a modern feel and fans walking along Nationwide Boulevard can watch the game right from the sidewalk.

Designing a professional, full-scale baseball facility on a tight, urban site required innovative solutions to site grading, with special attention to the limitations on funding available for construction. 


Conceptual and schematic design, construction documentation, and construction observation for the ballpark and adjacent surface infrastructure came together to create this dynamic and successful sports venue.
