Petco Park, San Diego

4.7
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. A visit to Petco Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our San Diego day trip planning app to plot your vacation.

  • Stumbled across the baseball park as neither me nor my wife our big baseball fans. Still decided to do the tour and so glad we did. It was so much fun and a great opportunity to experience baseball. T...  more »
  • I've been here a few times and am a bit saddened by how many Giants fans are here, visiting from NorCal and that apparently live here. It's one of the prettiest parks, along with AT&T and Safeco Field...  more »

  • Beautiful architecture! Very spacious. Pretty decent selection of materials as well. Not always everything I'm questing after but usually most items are there. Overall I'm pretty satisfied though. Would definitely bring/recommend someone here!
  • My favorite baseball stadium and the reason I ended up becoming a Padres fan. Situated in the heart of downtown San Diego, Petco Park features an array of amenities for people attending Padres games and concerts. The sitelines are excellent and make sure to visit the roof of the Western Metal Supply building to get a view of the surrounding neighborhood. The park is easily accessible by trolley.
  • Really big stadium. The stadium has a big park inside where kids and family can have a picnic and still enjoy the events petco park host. The park has a small baseball field for kids to play. The stadium has a lot of memorabilia for the honorable padres.
  • One of the coolest parks I have been too! Huge baseball fan and I loved it. Did the tour and it was an awesome experience! I'd recommend to anyone even if you don't like baseball.
  • Amazing views of the field from every seat in the stadium. The Park over looks beautiful sunny San Diego. Great food and great drinks all through out the stadium a little something for everyone.
