Brief Information about Petco Park:
On November 3, 1998 the voters of San Diego accepted Proposition C, which standard the city's share of a new $411 million dollar downtown ballpark for the Padres. The ballpark is a part of a larger Ballpark District, feature offices, retail, hotels, and housing units that promises to change a derelict section of downtown into a well-liked year-round destination.
However, in October of 2000, construction stopped because of a lack of money. There were no funds because the city had not sold bonds approved in the election while it defended itself against lawsuits brought by tax protesters. Construction began again, but the delays pushed the stadium’s opening from 2002 to 2004.
At street level, arcades recall the simple beauty of the early Spanish missions with a palm court, jacaranda trees, and water walls leading spectators into the Ballpark. Distinctive, strategically placed 200-foot tall towers provide unique functions, ranging from supporting lights for the playing field to housing luxury suites and lounges.

A unique "fractured" design of the seating bowl more clearly separates seating sections and creates a collection of seating neighborhoods, making all seating areas in the ballpark desirable. Not only are all of the seats as close to the playing field as possible, they are also angled towards the pitcher's mound to ensure quality views from every seat, regardless of location.
The ballpark has standing room and lawn seating opportunities that allow a true capacity of close to 46,000. Several standing room areas distributed throughout the facility give approximately 1,000 fans the opportunity to watch games for a small admission price. The "milling around" theme of the ballpark is further enhanced by an estimated 2,500 lawn seating opportunities in an elevated grass park located directly behind the outfield wall. Appropriately named the "Park at the Park", this area significantly enhances the baseball experience for fans of all ages.
