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. 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 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 was renovated and incorporated into the Ballpark, with the left-field foul pole attached to its southeastern corner, 336 feet from home plate. The 100-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.
Located at the hub of the regional transportation system, with easy access by car, Trolley, the Coaster, bus and water taxis, the Ballpark has ample parking and inviting promenades to and from your vehicle or public transit.
In short, PETCO Park is attractive, efficient, comfortable and strikingly beautiful - just like San Diego.
