Getting to Petco Park

Due to continued development in the ballpark district, event parking availability will be limited. Guests should expect increased traffic and parking delays when coming to Petco Park, and are strongly encouraged to pre-purchase parking. Doing so will guarantee their spot in a Padres-preferred lot at a discounted rate. Arriving early and taking public transportation are also encouraged, in order to minimize traffic and parking delays. Parking is available for pre-purchase online for all games
