MIAMI GARDENS, FLA. (WSVN) - When the Dolphins kick off the new season, they’ll do it in a Hard Rock Stadium that looks different both inside and out.
Two seasons ago, the stadium got new seats, and last season a canopy was added to keep fans shaded and cool.
This year, 37,000 new trees and shrubs line a completely redesigned parking lot, the suites are brand new and there are six new food options to choose from.
“Miami’s really a curator of culture, I think, for the rest of the country in a lot of ways: music, art, food, sports, and we wanted the Hard Rock Stadium to be a reflection of that,” said Tom Garfinkel, Miami Dolphins CEO.
