Do You Need A Ticket
Gallagher Square is inside Petco Park and so you will need to buy a ticket to get into the Padres game. Anyone inside the ballpark can wander over and explore, and vice-versa. There are no seats or assigned sections. It is all open lawn seating. When there is no Padres game or event going on, you do not need a ticket to enter.

Do my children need tickets to enter?
Yes. Children need tickets to attend games in the Gallagher Square unless they are under 36 inches. Children under 36 inches can enter Petco Park free without a ticket. (This is true in regular sections as well, as long as they sit on your lap and do not occupy a seat.)
