Stadiums with downtown skyline views

I'm curious which stadiums in Ohio features a pretty view of their city's downtown skyline...I know Akron St. Vincent St. Mary has a nice setting...are there any others?

Stargel Stadium. It's used by Taft and several other CPS schools.

Central Catholic has a view of a hospital parking garage, or if you are in a specific part of the visitors, maybe the tip of a high rise. Or into a delapidated ghetto behind the visitors'. It could have been so much more. (EDIT: maybe not so sure it could have been oriented in a way to bring in a better view. Just too much in the way)

BTW: Fremont, you had to know bucc was begging your response with this thread, right?

Waite: from the top rows of the visitors, which I think no longer exist, maybe. But the school itself might be in that line of sight. From the school, in the top floor library, you will get possibly one of the best views of a river/skyline possible. That will become obscurred somewhat by the new section 8 apts (ok, they say they're market rate but who puts market rate on a river, without pointing them to a view of the river? Oh wait, Toledo).

Reynoldsburg has a nice view of downtown Columbus in the distance. It's especially nice on a Friday evening after the sun goes down.

Dayton Welcome has a view of Downtown Dayton in the distance. I know it's on University of Dayton's Campus, but Dayton Public Schools play there.

I bet there were once several more than were replaced/relocated as property values rose for prime downtown real estate.

Booster Stadium in Maria Stein has a great view of an insurance company, a bar, a carryout, and a grain mill.

Was going to say the same thing about Hamilton Township, except we don't have the glare from the sun when looking north.

Just trying to be helpful, since as posters we often have no idea how old or young
some of our fellow 'Yappsters' are. --- I'm not trying to step on any toes.

Stadium / Columbus Central (now converted into COSI) was adjacent to the school.
west side of the property. The school closed June 1982. I can imagine sitting in the
stands there when the only skyline was the LeVeque Tower. Just across the river
and 1 block away.

Yeah, that sun glare is killer in the early season games for the 'Burg. Who builds their home stands facing west?!

The top of the home side at Byers has a pretty nice view of downtown Cleveland since it's so high up and Parma is at an elevation from downtown anyway.
