This historic and iconic stadium has undergone a series of upgrades focused on restoring the Rose Bowl’s historic elements while striving to elevate the fan experience. Numerous subtle architectural moves have brought the structure up to current seismic and accessibility standards, added restrooms and concessions, and created a new press box and luxury seating component. Uniquely conceived by Myron Hunt in the 1920’s, the bowl sits in a landscape berm in the midst of city owned parkland. New landscape elements include a rose-themed entry plaza, a bioswale to filter stormwater runoff from the stadium concourse, and field hedges mimicking the original design. Throughout the project EPT
DESIGN has made an effort to preserve and relocate trees impacted by construction and has worked with Historic Resources Group to rebuild historic cobblestone walls. The resultant planters have been filled with shrubs selected from the Rose family in honor of the namesake venue. History runs deep at the Rose Bowl, and with the completed improvements many more years of history are set to be made in this beautiful arroyo setting.
