Petco Park, San Diego

4.7
#7 of 320 in Things to do in San Diego
Major League Baseball's San Diego Padres call Petco Park home. The stadium is different from most because of its grassy, sloped area above the outfield fence, called Park at the Park. During games, fans can watch games from here for a low price. At other times, you can walk through this area and see the stadium for free. Note the Indian sandstone and stucco, white painted steel, and dark blue seats; this design intentionally represents the colors of San Diego, with its sandy beaches, white sails on boats, and blue ocean. Take a guided tour of the ballpark to see usually off-limits areas, such as the dugout and pressroom. The grandstands provide superb views of the city's skyline, bay, and Balboa Park.

    Petco Park may not be home to the greatest baseball team but it is home to some of the best views and is a must for all baseball fans. Every seat in the park is a winner but I recommend sitting up hig...  more »

    It may sell, transfer, different from Japan in American professional sports. I think the Padres are one of them?. I think it's relatively new ballpark, Petco Park. Just sit in the audience a very beautiful Stadium, and gets even more excited. It is really beautiful. I think very good Sushi (perhaps during baseball's) tourism goes partly in did not feel near environment too risky. However, return transport is difficult to secure? Because it's a useful recommended the.

    Parking is super easy (for a price, of course), the park has lots of room to walk around and explore; plenty of great food and drink, and there isn't a bad seat in the house. And, great city views to ...  more »

    This baseball park is so beautiful.... the scenery from every angle is awesome. So many places to get a bite to eat and the fact that you can bring your own food in...order take out from nearby places and eat in the park is so great.... parking on the street is great after 6pm because the meters are free then... you can also park across the street near the civic center and walk the bridge over to the stadium.... such an awesome park

    Petco is a great taste of San Diego. From local fare to our outdoor lifestyle the stadium, local vendors and grassy park-at-the-park, you get a very well-rounded San Diego baseball experience. Accessibility and walking the park was very well engineered, you enter and generally walk down to your seats, or escalator up then walk down to your seats. Upscale seats and services are also well thought out and staff are courteous, helpful and knowledgeable. The convenience of Toyota Terrace services and great food and service of Lexus Home Plate club are truly top-notch. AV and entertainment are also very well produced.

    Went to Petco Park to see the Dodgers play the Padres and had a great time. The stadium well older is very modern and laid out very nicely. All the seeds appear to have a good view of the game and the concession stands have a variety of Gourmet Foods as well as the standard hot dogs, popcorn and crackerjacks. Look forward to my next visit!

    Always have a good time when I come here. Had great seats I. The 3rd deck between home and 1st. Food options have gotten to be really good. Lots of BBQ places and my all-time favorite burger place, Hodad's, is now at the stadium. Really love coming to the stadium and had a great time with the family.

    Petco has really developed into a first-class baseball experience. In addition to being a great baseball park where you can really enjoy the game comma they have brought in quite a few craft beer and Kraft Food vendors. There are still the overpriced hot dogs and Budweiser if that's what you prefer. However, if you are really looking to enjoy some good food and good beer while you watch a game, Petco has that as well.
