Petco Park

PETCO Park is spectacular in every way, combining the best sight lines in baseball with breathtaking views of San Diego. Architecturally magnificent, it celebrates the sea, the sky, the natural beauty, cultural diversity and unique spirit of our region. Innovative design features evoke the timeless traditions of baseball in an intimate setting, with state-of-the-art fan amenities to suit every taste and budget.

The natural stone and stucco exterior and lovely landscaping, including the Park at the Park beyond the outfield fence, make this the garden spot of baseball, with a relaxed yet dynamic atmosphere that reflects the San Diego lifestyle.

Concourses are spacious, open and airy. Signature towers and terraces offer panoramic views of the Bay, the downtown skyline, Balboa Park and the mountains on the horizon of America?s Finest City. Fans are lower and closer to the action than at Qualcomm Stadium. The playing field is asymmetrical, with dimensions and charming features that accentuate traditional baseball values.

The seating bowl is divided into distinctive "neighborhoods." All 42,000 fixed seats are comfortable, with cup-holders and extra leg room. Seats down the lines are angled to the infield. The two upper levels are built on extended cantilevers, with the front of the Terrace Level only 34 feet above the field, creating a sense of intimacy reminiscent of the great old ballparks.

The handsome and historic Western Metal Supply Company Building has been renovated and incorporated into the Ballpark, with the left-field foul pole attached to its southeastern corner, 334 feet from home plate. The 98-year-old structure houses the Padres Team Store on the first floor, with a door opening onto a standing room area in left field. The second and third floors feature festive Party Suites. A restaurant on the fourth floor provides terrace dining with superb views of the field. There is bleacher seating and standing room on the roof, 80 feet above the field.

In short, PETCO Park is attractive, efficient, comfortable and strikingly beautiful ? just like San Diego. Welcome home!

Located at the hub of the regional transportation system, with easy access by car, Trolley, the Coaster, bus and future water taxis, the Ballpark has ample parking and inviting promenades to and from your vehicle or public transit.

Parking downtown was limited before the ballpark arose and spaces are even scarcer -- and more expensive now. Consider carpooling or taking the trolley, which drops you right across the street.

Trolley tickets run from $1.50-$2.50 each way.
