The most unique feature of Turner Field is the Grand Entry Plaza located on the north end of the ballpark. The Plaza is a ticketed entertainment/concession area consisting of two food and game-filled pavilions, Scouts Alley, and The Taco Mac Family Zone all aimed at encouraging fans to come early to Braves games and to enjoy perhaps the most unique experience in all of baseball. A 100-foot diameter photograph of Hank Aaron's actual 715th home run ball dominates the Plaza-side scoreboard and provides a popular backdrop for photographs in the Plaza. Adjacent to the Plaza on the north side are the Ivan Allen Jr. Braves Hall of Fame Museum, Braves ticket windows and a non-ticketed, free-to-the-public area called Monument Grove. Additional areas for fans include Coca-Cola Sky Field, on the west side of the upper level and Turner Beach located on the east side of the Lexus Level.
Monument Grove: Monument Grove is a large, park-like area adjacent to the Braves ticket windows. The Hank Aaron, Phil Niekro and Ty Cobb statues from Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium have been relocated to Monument Grove along with the bust of Hank Aaron. Trees, park benches and picnic tables are scattered throughout the Grove, an ideal meeting place for fans and friends. Additional attractions include the retired number statues of the five players in Atlanta history to have been given that honor — Warren Spahn, Eddie Mathews, Hank Aaron, Phil Niekro and Dale Murphy, the six-foot high team baseballs celebrating the 2000 All-Star Game and the "Full Count" sculpture on loan from 100 City View and the Russell Corporation. The piece — just one in a growing Turner Field art collection — includes a pitcher, batter, catcher & umpire all in their respective stances. Monument Grove is also home to the Braves' Walk of Fame located in front of the Ivan Allen Jr. Braves Museum and Hall of Fame.
East & West Pavilions: Located just inside the main Turner Field gates, the East and West Pavilions feature unique foods and games, providing much to see and do for those fans who arrive early to the ballpark. The East Pavilion houses interactive experiences and delightful concession offerings. At the West Pavilion, fans will find concession stands that feature famous food items from other ballparks throughout baseball along with a Turner Field original offering, bison. Also located at the West Pavilion are games where fans can test their hitting skills at Little Leaguers and Big Hitters, and their throwing skills at the Peach Pitch.
Braves Chop House: An 8,000-square-foot casual dining bar and restaurant, directly above the Braves bullpen. Fans may drink and dine at the restaurant, which is terraced to facilitate views to the baseball field from as many seats as possible.
Braves Clubhouse Store: Located in the plaza area, at the base of the main scoreboard, a retail center featuring a large variety of Braves' merchandise and apparel for fans to choose from. As fans enter the store, they can view a line of television monitors that will broadcast other Major League Baseball games in progress.
Coca-Cola Sky Field: Meet at the Coke bottle, a 22,000-square-foot Coke fan attraction that sits atop the outfield roof at Turner Field. Features include a pavilion with picnic tables; a base path for kids and a 38-foot tall Coke bottle made of baseball equipment. Open to every fan.
Scouts Alley: An educational/entertainment area like you have never seen at a ballpark. It is located near the West Pavilion of the Plaza behind the lower left field seats. Designed to teach fans about the fine art of scouting, Scouts Alley integrates original scouting reports of great Braves players with skill games, educational interactives, and touch screen kiosks. In Scouts Alley, fans can test their hitting skills at Outta the Park and their throwing skills at Power Pitcher, In Control and Throwin' Heat. The educational interactives include exhibits that demonstrate the action of different pitches and a comparison of the various gloves used by infielders, outfielders, pitchers and catchers. Fans can also see and feel the difference in the various bats used by Braves players or see how high an outfielder has to jump to steal a home run. At other interactives, fans will learn about Hank Aaron's "hot" spot and Dale Murphy's "sweet" spot. The touch screen kiosks located in Scouts Alley house close to 200 original scouting reports on former and current Braves players and a trivia game that allows fans to test their baseball knowledge against the computer. It also allows fans access to surf the Braves, CNN/SI, or Panasonic websites.
The Top of the Chop: The Top of the Chop is an extention of the famous Turner Field Chop House complete with it's very own staircase. The Top of the Chop is the ultimate party zone furnished with 200 feet of railing to view the field and a three tiered party deck for fans to hang out with friend and still enjoy a great view of the game. Food and drinks are readily accessable from the Braves Red Chop Hut and picnic tables and bar barrel tables allow for plenty of seating. A private beer garden area is available for group outings or events.
