Went there fall of 07'. Was on a trip with my wife and it is a beautiful park. They were playing the Padres and I went to 2 games while I was there. I remember listening to some of the fans talking and saying how they were still in the race, and thinking to myself, not a prayer. They then went on that run which took them to the world series, where they ran out of gas against the Red Sox.
There is a pretty good view from the park, when clear. You can see the mountains in the distance. was pretty cool at sunset.
One of the games I sat in left field, it was upper deck (4 rows back), which were good seats, but you cannot see the fence line below. Kaz Matsui hit a HR but from the deck you just saw it disappear from view and then the crowd go nuts. I guess that's just a quirk you have to deal with if you sit in those seats.
Interesting notes, there is a CUBS store right next to the stadium. They sell a little of everything but mostly cubs stuff. The owner is from Chicago and the store is very successful. Also, one of the games I went to was on a Sunday, and you couldn't move around in the gift shops and some concourses because the TV's had the Bronco game on and people were huddled around watching it.
