Petco Park San Diego

Petco parkIf you are down in San Diego during Padre season, you have to go to a game at Petco park.
Petco Park opened in 2004 and is nestled in downtown San Diego close to the convention center. This open-air ballpark has an old time feel to it and is a must see when visiting San Diego.
Home of the Padres, the park was named after the pet supply retailer Petco. I know, did I state the obvious?
The ballpark is located between 7th and 10th avenues, South of J Street. The southern side of the stadium has the trolley access. Near K Street between 7th and 10th is now closed to automobiles and serves as a pedestrian promenade along the back of the left and center field outfield seating.
Going to the ballpark is always a great staycation activity. Nothing like the feel of being there with the hot dogs and pop corn and just the excitement in the air. Visit the ballpark souvenir store and walk around and investigate a little. There is always something going on. The cheers and singing ‘take me out to the ball game’ after the 7th inning. Hearing people yell at players as if they could hear them and will do exactly what the fan says. “ You stink” is my favorite. Second favorite is “Catch the ball” as if they deliberately missed it. All in fun though, and always a fun excursion.
Opening season for the Padres starts March 20th against their rivals the Dodgers. Always a fun game.
