"Veterans Field" to become "Veterans Plaza"

Thank you to those readers who enlightened me on the future of Veterans Field:

Veterans Plaza will be an attractive public space that includes a pavilion of about 7,000 sq feet that will be used for ice skating in the winter and for concerts and other outdoor events in the summer. The Plaza will include a memorial design by Toby Mendez, the artist who did the Thurgood Marshall memorial at the State Capital in Annapolis.

Since the artifical turf was put in as an interim installation so the site could be used until construction starts early next year, it was called Veterans Field (as a temporary name) in anticipation of the Veterans Plaza.
