Candlestick “The Stick” Park
Candlestick Park was an outdoor sports and entertainment stadium venue located in the SF Bayview Heights. The stadium was originally built as the home of The SF Giants who played there from 1960 until moving into AT&T Park in 2000. It was also the home field of the 49ers of the until 2013.
The stadium was situated at Candlestick Point on the western shore of the SF Bay. Due to its location next to the bay, strong winds often swirled down into the stadium, creating erratic playing conditions.
As we all know, demolition of this iconic and beloved park “The Stick” began in 2014 and is now completed.
