First-person reviews of what its like to tour Petco Park:

  • San Diego Blog
    A tour of Petco Park turned out to be an eye-opening, fun thing to do. I kind of like visiting Petco Park when nobody is around — no baseball players messing up the field, no fans standing around making a big racket and blocking the impressive vistas of beautiful San Diego all around the stadium.

  • Behind the Scenes
    With opening day being less then two weeks away, the Padres’ downtown San Diego Stadium, PETCO Park, is buzzing with excitement. Being PETCO’s next-door neighbor, all of us in the office are looking forward to baseball season.

  • Petco Park Tour

    I’ve spent the last week in San Diego visiting family, and while I was there I took in a tour of Petco Park. It proved to be a highly educational experience, especially when trying to look at the venue from the perspective of a team owner such as Lew Wolff.

    I have always thought Petco was a great ballpark, but now that we have taken a tour, all I can say is WOW!!

    We got to walk around the Western Metals building. We went on the field, and into the clubhouse. The players have it good.
