The San Diego Padres and its contracted partners, in collaboration and cooperation with Major League Baseball and Federal, State and local governmental agencies, are committed to the development and execution of a Green Initiative for Petco Park. This proactive plan is focused on the implementation of recycling, waste management, energy efficiencies and water conservation. The goal is to utilize as many available and appropriate resources as possible in an effort to operate the ballpark in an environmentally friendly manner. In order to maintain a successful Green Initiative, Petco Park is dedicated to provide continuous education and outreach to all ballpark employees and fans.
The following partners work together toward a greener Petco Park:
2005 2011 City of San Diego Recycler of the Year Award

New Safety Measures
New for 2015 and as part of a Major League Baseball initiative to strengthen and standardize security practices across the League, walk-through metal detectors will be installed at all Petco Park entry gates and access points. Starting this season, all fans will be screened as they enter the ballpark.
As they have in years past, fans will continue to have their bags checked by ballpark security staff prior to reaching entry gates. Express Entry lines will be available at all main gates for fans without bags and Season Ticket Members.
Parking Lot Update
Also new in 2015, due to planned development in the ballpark district that will result in the loss of more than 500 parking spaces, neighborhood parking rates will be increasing in 2015. The area formerly known as the Parcel C parking lot will soon be developed into a mixed-use building, and will no longer be available for parking.
Guests should expect increased traffic and parking delays when coming to Petco Park, and are strongly encouraged to pre-purchase parking online at www.padres.com/transportation. 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 will be available for pre-purchase online beginning when single-game tickets go on sale Friday, February 6th at 9am.
