Have you Heard of Petco Park at the Park?
Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres, is a unique Major League ballpark that offers fans and vacationers an experience unlike any other. Situated in the heart of downtown San Diego, park visitors are able to enjoy a panoramic view of the city and ocean. The park, which opened in 2004, was designed to cater to Padres fans and visitors, offering amenities including seven restaurants and lounges, picnic terraces, bleacher seating, dugout seats and more.
One of the highlights of the ballpark is Petco Park at the Park. For a low price, attendees can relax on this grassy lawn seating area that sits above the outfield fence. Approximately 2.7 acres in size, the park is the ideal place for visitors who are interested in catching a glimpse of a Padres game.
Activities at the Park at the Park
The Park at the Park has a Little League (t-ball) field, a children’s playground and a large grassy area surrounding the Tony Gwynn statue where children are often found playing and running around. With plenty of space to spread out and tables scattered throughout the area, fans can enjoy a picnic as they watch the game. For a taste of the beach, check out the small section with sand found in front of the bleachers.
The Park at the Park opens two and a half hours before the scheduled game time allowing guests to view batting practice as well as other pre-game activities. There are also several concession stands including the famous Randy Jones’ BBQ. If the Padres are playing an away game, fans can enjoy the game on the “Away at the Park” big screen.
