The exterior of the building includes an outdoor plaza that connects to the expansive, 20-acre Cille and Ron Williams Yards. Near the location of the historic stockyards that stood on this site for more than a century, the new, flexible, hardscaped Yards allow for events all year round, including concerts and festivals, large equipment trade shows, sporting events and drive-in movies. They feature removable pens for livestock shows, as well access to power and water throughout. They can also be used as ample parking for other events at the site.
