“Interesting integration of a ballpark with urban surroundings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

We were pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed the off-season tour. Much of the structure was designed by Antoine Predock (who designed Arizona Science Museum in Phoenix, Austin City Hall, sevaral structures in Albuquerque, etc.) and it shows; this is not simply a ball park but an architectural creation with interesting spaces, integration with an old factory building, and spectacular sight lines for watching the game. The guide we had (Patty) was a lifelong baseball fan with many stories; she materially added to the quality of the tour. Well worth the price of admission, even if you are not a baseball nut.

“Baseball Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

Petco is the finest ballpark I have ever visited. Sightlines are great, the retro look is captivating, and the nearby Gaslamp District is a big plus. If you visit San Diego, during the summer, find yourself a trolley station and head on down.

It's amazing to see this park right in the middle of the city!!! Not far from the convention center and marina walk.

“You Don't Have to Be a Baseball Fan!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

You don't really have to be a baseball fan to enjoy the Petco Park Ballpark Tour. This is one of the nicest ballparks in America. A lot of thought went into the design of the place. I've been to historic Fenway Park in Boston, but this tour was better. If you go on a day when there is no game you get to walk on the field and into the visiting team's locker room. Walking distance from the Gaslamp District and downtown.

“Park in a park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

We came here and watched a game. The kids liked the small playground inside the ball park. Careful because it can get cold at night, bring a jacket!
