Basically, that they have an open door even when there is not a game or event scheduled, so that you can sit out and look down on the field, perhaps even go on the field and take pictures, sprint the stadium steps, etc.?

I know that Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, home of the Florida Gators does this, and while I believe that you can pay to take a more detailed tour of AT&T Stadium (Cowboys) they will let you go into the stadium and down on the field at any point in time. At UCF, they have the stadium open for stair runs twice a week for students (though they probably wouldn't turn away outsiders, since there aren't many, because they don't publicize it). Does anyone know of other stadiums like this? I think it helps, when trip planning, or if you are in another city, because it is a nice thing to be able to go in and see a stadium for many tourists, even when there isn't a game happening, or for those that don't want to drop the money for a ticket.

I went to the TD Garden (Fleet Center at the time) in August of 2003 to get some Bruins swag at the pro shop and then wandered around a bit and took a look at the old North Station which is down in the basement.

Yeah, I remembered the station ran through there, thought that was neat. Can you enter and look down on the court at all?

PNC Park is built adjacent to walking trails along the river. During the summer months the main gates are open allowing walkers and joggers to run through PNC park along the concourse that runs adjacent to the riverfront trail.
