Here’s a list of the can’t-miss things to see, do and sample when you visit Petco Park.
You could spend a day admiring Petco Park without even watching a ballgame. It's a one-of-a-kind ballpark with an undeniable San Diego vibe. Here's a list of the can't-miss things to see, do and eat when you visit Petco Park.
Tony Gwynn, one of the greatest hitters who ever lived, is a beloved San Diego treasure — playing for the Pads for his entire 20-year career. "Mr. Padre" has been immortalized in Petco Park with a 9.5-foot bronze statue commemorating his life, achievements and contributions to San Diego, both on and off the field. It's located just beyond the outfield in Gallagher Square.
This inviting, family-minded space serves as the park's "town square", with a broad swath of lawn bordered by pathways and shade trees. Gallagher Square — which doubles as a public park when games aren’t happening — also boasts promotions including Party in the Park every Friday, with live music and a pregame happy hour, and KidsFest (presented by SDG&E) every Sunday, with inflatables, games and more for kids.
When the Padres are away, Petco Park is still hopping! You can find many concerts and events happening at the ballpark. Artists headed to Petco Park in 2023 include Darius Rucker (Aug. 25), Weezer (Sept. 3), and the Wild Horses festival with Zach Bryan (Dec. 30).
Watch the game in comfort in the Toyota Terrace, located on the second level at Petco Park. You'll have shade on hot days and will be close to some of the best amenities at the ballpark. While there are no bad seats at Petco (really…it's crazy), these are some of the coolest.
San Diegans love baseball. They also love craft beer. This is why Petco Park offers the best craft beer experience found at a ballpark, meaning you no longer have to settle for the fizzy yellow swill most stadiums offer. Check out Craft Row, a row of beer stands located behind home plate, and each featuring suds from some of the many breweries around town. It's like walking through a beer festival on the way to your seat.
The best way to experience the ballpark is by going behind the scenes. Petco Park offers daily tours that allow fans to experience the ballpark like a Padres player. You don’t want to miss these!
SoCal beach life meets Padres baseball vibes with Petco Park’s Craft Pier, a deck area behind center field in Gallagher Square. The boardwalk-inspired zone offers a selection of Ballast Point Craft Beer, available to anyone with a game ticket.
The upper deck offers a fun view of the game below (bring binoculars!) and a breathtaking vista of the cityscape beyond. The secret, however, is to turn around. Climb to the top of the upper deck and look behind the stadium. You'll get a unique view of the San Diego-Coronado Bridge, and if the day is clear enough you can see Mexico and a couple of its islands in the distance.Photo courtesy of Matt Thomas/San Diego Padres.
