Dodger Stadium has been the home of the Los Angeles Dodgers Major League Baseball team since 1962. Despite being built in a part of Los Angeles called Chávez Ravine, the stadium is also on a hillside overlooking downtown Los Angeles, tree-lined hills of Elysian Park to the north and east; and the San Gabriel Mountains beyond the outfield pavilions. One of the park’s distinctive features is the wavy roof atop each outfield pavilion. Strobe lights were added in 1999; they flash when the Dodgers take the field, after a Dodger home run and after a Dodger win. A unique terraced-earthworks parking lot was built behind the main stands, allowing ticketholders to park at roughly the level that their seats are, minimizing their climbing and descending of ramps once they get inside the stadium. It was also designed to be earthquake-resistant, an important consideration in California, and has stood the test of several serious earthquakes.
