The pressbox and luxury suites. The field is named for Billy Parker, a former Angels infielder and the first Parks director of the city of Surprise.


Small second decks sit on either end of the luxury suites and hang over the main seating bowl.


Plaques along the concourse honor members of the Surprise Recreation Campus Hall of Fame, which celebrates the accomplishments of players who trained in Surprise.


The Rangers clubhouse sits in the right field corner and Texas banners run along the first base concourse.


The view of the Royals clubhouse from the left field concourse. The clubhouses resemble hotels, with balconies and a courtyard that are open to the stadium.


The batting cages sit right on the main concourse, next to the clubhouses, and allow fans to look in. Saguaros retired numbers hang on the face of the first base cages.


The park features a large amount of foul territory down the lines before the grandstand turns back in to face home plate in the outfield.


Arizona mountains are visible beyond the stadium from the outfield concourse.


The bullpens are cut into the berms, with a row of seats overlooking the field from above.


The scoreboard overlooks the field from left field, and the flags of all the Cactus League teams fly from atop the center field batter's eye.


The outfield wall is uniform all the way around, though it turns to mesh fencing at the bullpens.
