The Forest Hills Stadium has recently undergone a design update that includes a new grass area in front of the arena.

Attendees to the stadium will be able to go on the new grass concourse to relax as well as eat food curated by the local food vendors.

The new grass goes over the area that was previously covered by plastic that was used to protect the courts.

A representative of the stadium, in a statement, said that the new concourse area will “breathe new life into the venue and its grounds” and “open the flow.”

Stadium officials said that they have also added five hidden, private VIP lounges inside the venue, in addition to four that are already there, including one where concern goers have to go through a fake port-a-potty to gain access.

Each new lounge will have a secret entry point and will feature its “own special decor and superb views of the stage,” the representative said. “The VIP lounges will offer a truly unique experience that fans will find at no other venue.”
