Parking Changes for 2015

Why are parking rates increasing in 2015?
The ballpark district is thriving like never before. Neighborhood development, including the Sempra Energy tower just beyond center field and the soon-to-be-developed mixed use building at what used to be the Parcel C parking lot (Park Blvd. and Imperial Ave.) will have a significant impact on the way fans have grown accustomed to visiting Petco Park over the past 11 seasons.
Due to the loss of more than 500 parking spaces in Parcel C, neighborhood parking rates, including those in lots surrounding the ballpark, will be increasing in 2015.
How can I get the lowest priced parking available?
Fans are encouraged to pre-purchase their parking online in order to get a discount over the day-of-game rate for Padres-owned lots. Due to its close proximity to entry gates and accessibility to I-5, the Tailgate Park lot along the Imperial Avenue Corridor will be priced slightly higher than the Padres Parkade on 10th Avenue at J Street. Please see the map of Padres-owned parking lots for rate information by game and lot.
What is happening to the Parcel C parking lot? Why is it now unavailable?
The lot formerly known as Parcel C will soon be developed into a mixed-use building, resulting in the loss of more than 500 parking spaces. That lot has never been owned by the current Padres ownership group, and the Padres have no control over its development.
How will my game-day routine be affected?
With less parking available in lots surrounding the ballpark, fans can expect increased traffic and parking delays near the ballpark.
What can I do to alleviate the impact?
We strongly encourage fans to arrive early, and pre-purchase their parking at or take public transportation downtown. The Trolley and Coaster both offer special event service to all Padres games and most stations provide free "Park and Ride" lots. For more information visit Getting to Petco Park.
