Several sightseeing tours provide views of the stadium, including waterfront Segway tours, independent GoCar tours, and panoramic city tours. To go to a baseball game, you can purchase tickets on the official Padres’ website. Or book a guided stadium tour to see the dugout, press box, and other places that are usually off-limits to the public.

Great tour
Had a great tour of Petco Stadium. Our guide was funny and very informative. It was fun to see the field from so many different angles and learn so much of the history. We loved going into the broadcasting booth and the expensive seats behind home plate. If you love baseball and stadiums, you will love this tour.

Getting to stand in the visitors dugout and on the field was the highlight. All the behind the scenes areas, i.e. press box, visitors locker room, Padres batting cages, VIP fan sections, were awesome!

Learning the history of the ballpark and how it was built was very cool! It would be cool to see the home club house and go in their dugout.

Great way to see Petco Park behind the scenes and get some great history. It’s a beautiful ballpark and it’s really cool to see where it started and to visit the locations you wouldn’t normally be able to go! Definitely would recommend for a baseball Or sports fan.

Me and the boys loved every aspect of the tour. It’s very hard to say which part stood out the most. If we had to choose I think we’d all agree that going into the visiting team locker room and then heading out to the dugout is something we will never forget.

Our tour guide, Mike, was very knowledgeable about the Park. He took us all over. I especially loved the Press Box. I was so pleased that longtime Broadcaster, Jerry Coleman was honored. The tour was 80 minutes. If you get there early, the Parking across the street is $1 an hour.

Great tour -- even if you don't like baseball!

We really enjoyed this tour -- including me, who is completely not into baseball! It was fun and informative, and our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable. He clearly loves his job, loves the Padres, and loves being able to share his passion with the tour guests. We went into the visiting team's locker room and dugout, up to the fancy suites, the press box and a bunch of cool places in between. Really recommend it!

Really great tour, very informative. The field was under construction as was much of the stadium, but it was still really cool to see the inner workings and views of Petco Park.

It was a terrific walking tour around Petco Stadium courtesy of Jim, our guide. He was informative, engaging and extremely enthusiastic. Our group of four have a new appreciation of the history and daily working of the stadium. Jim paced the tour perfectly, accommodating those who were a bit slower. So glad we took the time

When to Get There

The Major League Baseball season runs from roughly early April to early October, followed by the postseason, which extends through October. The Park at the Park opens 2.5 hours before game time via the Gaslamp and East Village gates; all other entries open 90 minutes before game time. Guided tours usually take place daily except on game days and other select dates.

Park at the Park

If you’d rather sprawl on the grass during a game instead of sitting with the masses in the stadium, head to Park at the Park, a 2.7-acre (1.1-hectare) green space. It’s inside the ballpark gates but outside the outfield, providing a more relaxing experience and partial views of the game plus all the action on an enormous screen. You still need a game ticket, but you can bring in food if it’s wrapped. This is a great option for families!
