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.

  • I've been to roughly 10 baseball stadiums throughout America and Petco is by far the best stadium without a roof. The Petco staff does an amazing job at keeping the place clean and the atmosphere great! No it doesn't have the history of Fenway, or the grandeur of Miller Park, but it was a great experience! And you can't go wrong with San Diegos perfect temperatures!
  • Awesome ball park but its always empty! They need to lower ticket prices to fill the place up and allow more people to enjoy it. I think it make an even greater atmosphere.
  • Beautiful ball park with a great, fan-friendly atmosphere. Lots of good food and drink options. Doesn't seem to be a bad seat or sightline in the house. Highly recommend you catch a game here.
  • When we visit San Diego, taking in a Padres game at Petco Park is top on our list of things to do. The setting is perfect and the views are amazing. We took the Petco tour this time and loved it! Well worth the time and cost.
  • Petco was recently voted the best ballpark in MLB and with good reason. The entire downtown/stadium experience is fantastic. Whether you're a family looking for a fun experience or a group of young people who want to cut loose, Petco Park is a great place to do it!
