NORTH PLAZA Features Video Boards, Fountain and Public Art The North Plaza, described as the gateway for both Texas Live! and the future Globe Life Field, features six video boards, public art and a 60-foot-wide fountain that can be programmed to entertain visitors with colorful water shows. The new Entertainment District gathering space, which is about 2 ½ acres in size, opened to the public on Aug. 9 as part of the grand opening celebration of Texas Live! Next to the “Going to the World Series” statue, people walking through the plaza space can enjoy the lights and sounds of a large water fountain featuring the Texas Rangers’ T logo. Fans can also see Rangers’ game highlights, footage from concerts 4 at Texas Live!’s Arlington Backyard and other programming. “The fountain will be a combination of LED lighting and water, which will be kid-friendly and fan safe,” said Rob Matwick, Rangers Executive Vice President of Business Operations. “We can hit a button that will activate the video boards and the fountain to engage fans who are outside the stadium in celebration of a Rangers’ win.” "Going to the Show" statue
