The architect who designed Candlestick Park was John Bolles of Chin & Hensolt. The construction was done by Charles Harney at the cost of $15 million to the city of San Francisco.
Trivia Alert: Did you know that the Beatles played their last concert EVER in Candlestick Park on August 29, 1966?
Candlestick Park was built overlooking Candlestick Cove which was named long before due to the now extinct candlestick bird which used to live in the cove. In 1995 the city of San Francisco received a six-month five-hundred thousand dollar naming rights deal from 3Com Corporation. In 1996 3Com extended the contract through 2002 for $3.9 million.
