Modern Woodmen Park (formerly John O'Donnell Stadium) home of the Quad City River Bandits in Davenport, IA has a beautiful view with the Mississippi River and Centennial Bridge in right field and the Davenport skyline in left field. In 2010 USA Today included It as one of the "10 Great Places for a Baseball Pilgrimage."

Having gone to countless games there in the past 11 years, I've always felt PNC Park's view was a little overrated, but I just might be used to it. Nonetheless, here are some more recent shots of it (ones I took last year) than the ones in this thread. A few more buildings have been built, which I think makes it look better as it seems "fuller", for lack of a better term.:

The bottom one is clearly photoshopped, but it's still a nice view.

The camera's at about the same level, yet the waterway is half as big and the buildings are significantly closer in the second pic.

PNC is the best real skyline view, bar none.

It never materialized, but the proposed Labatt Park in Montreal would've been awesome:

That would've been awesome! The buildings would've been right on top of everything, as well. Too bad the rest of MLB had it in for the Expos.

Never been there, but since we're mentioning minor league parks, I like the view from Salt Lake's Spring Mobile Ballpark:

As well as St. George's Bruce Hurst Field:

Dammit Montreal.

If only Skydome had no roof or hotel:

Dammit Toronto!

Whataburger Field. Worst name for a ballpark ever?

No way! I mean they raise this flag when they have a home win.

Aesthetically, that sign is really nice (and that flag is GORGEOUS!), but I still think Whataburger is a hilariously bad corporate name, and that goes double when it's placed on a ballpark.
