Best Ball Park I have been to. I have been across the Bay to see Oakland play a few times... and its just not as good as at&t.......I love PacBell aka at&t park....Have lived in the Bay area most of my life...anyone who posts negative about my beloved stadium, is either a rival of the Giants, or jealous of our beautiful park on the Bay......There is wheelchair accessability...right down from where I sit, there is an entire row for handicap, and wheelchairs can use the ramps....the food is awesome... the park is awesome, its a good time at PACBELL....AT&T..........If there are people who do not like our park, then, they don't need to go to the park....another park I found nice was the Old Wriggley Field in Chicago... it is authentic...very cool...so is the RedSox stadium
GET SKINNY AGAIN. WELL I SEE SOME PEOPLE HAD A FEW THINGS TO SAY ABOUT MY REVIEW. HUNNYKINS: OF COURSE YOUR HUSBAND WOULD BE COMFORTABLE I WOULD HAVE BEEN TOO IF I CAN AFFORD TO GET SUITES. DID YOU EVEN SIT ON THE FEILD SEATS? FROMT THE SOUND OF IT NO. AND TO SFGIANTSFAN22 YES I HAVE GONE TO GIANTS GAMES BUT I PREFER A WINNING TEAM THAT DOESN'T REQUIRE STEROIDS TO JUST KEEP UP WITH THE REST OF THE LEAGUE. AND A PERSON WHO DRIVES TO THE PARK IS A PERSON WHO HAS SEEN SECURITY FOOTAGE OF BART AND SEEN HOMELESS PEOPLE MASTER BATING ON THE SEATS AND NEXT TIME YOU TAKE BART SLAM THE SEAT WITH YOUR HAND AND WATCH HOW MUCH DEBRIS FLOATS THROUGH THE AIR. BOTTOM LINE IS WHEN I GO THE SEATS ON LOWER LEVEL ARE GARBAGE AND I WAS NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH A PROBLEMS WITH THIS. AS I SAID THE STADIUM IS NICE BUT SEATING IS CRAMMED TOGETHER AND SMALL. AND YES FOOD IS NOT SO GOOD. THE NACHOS HAD STALE CHIPS THE PRETZELS WERE COLD AND NO NACHO CHEESE WAS NOT AVAILABLE FOR PRETZELS UNLIKE OAKLAND AND LIKE SOMEONE ELSES REVIEW SAID NO CONSESSION PEOPLE HARDLY AROUND. AND IF SFGIANTSFAN22 IS SUCH A FAN WHY IS HE CALLING IN PAC BELL PARK IT HASN'T BEEN PAC BELL PARK FOR 2 YEARS. AND HUNNYKINS THE OAKLAND ATHLETICS HAD A BETTER YEAR THAN THE ROYALS, GIANTS AND DODGERS PRETTY GOOD FOR TEAM NOT IN EXISTENCE. AT&T PARK IS STILL OVER RATED.
A Gift to the Baseball World. As a long time Giants fan, I very much appreciate the Giant ownership groups effort in erecting A T & T Park. The group listened to fans suggestions, toured all the ballparks in America and took all their best features and ideas, picked a wonderful building location transportation-wise (that also helped rejuvanate its neighborhood) and incorporated all of this into one beautiful package. For a fan that saw the team nearly leave San Francisco twice, I can take comfort in knowing that not only will the team not threaten to leave again, but that as a San Franciscan I will always have this amazing place to watch baseball. A T & T Park is the ballpark that San Franciscans wanted for so many years, and after all the many failed ballot measures both in SF and elsewhere it feels great to call it our own. In regards to the negative post left by the person complaining about the size of the seats, I had not heard that complaint until now-and the park is entering its 8th season of baseball in 2 weeks. The food isn't cheap, but it is tasty. If the prices inside are a little steep for you, there are many places within one block of the ballpark (including a Safeway supermarket) one could get food ranging from sandwiches to pizza to ice cream- and the Giants let you bring it in the park. A true testament of the lure of the park is the Giants sub-.500 records in recent seasons and the fans 3 million-plus attendance in spite of that. This park is a must-see regardless of if you like baseball or not.
High class ballpark!. I believe I said we sat in the stadium seats during a tour that is offered. I actually grew up in Phx so I saw many many teams play, way before steroids became a problem, during spring training. I have always loved SF, the city, and am still impressed with the ballpark. I am a Dodger fan because my dad is, coming from when they were the Brooklyn Dodgers , as he is from NY. Daughters can follow in the passions of their fathers, you know. However, having lived for years in So Cal, and now living in Kansas City, I have a thing against Oakland, even if it isn't baseball related <smile>
That guy is CRAZY!.
Don't listen to the previous guy, saying to GET SKINNY. The review was asking for his opinion of the BALL PARK, not how large he is or how he generalizes everyone in SF as gay and skinny. If you don't like the seats then don't go...PacBell Park is for real Giants fans, not those who go there for Motocross and Monster Truck shows, then drive down to Oakland for a ball game.
PacBell park is amazing!
The best food: What other park can you get rice bowls, hot dogs and GB garlic fries all in one place? Just do a little exploring around the park and you'll find different food stands everywhere! Beer too! The prices will be high, but they are in line with everything else in SF so it shouldn't be a big surprise to anyone.
The view: I can't even put the view into words...
The weather: Yes, it can get cold but again...it's SF and you are sitting in a park that is built on the water. This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone either. Besides, what Californians consider cold and what the rest of the world consider cold are drastically different. You'll be fine with a sweatshirt...a Giants sweatshirt.
The parking: Who in the world drives in SF? Not anyone who lives there, that's for sure. Public Transportation is more than accomodating and you have your choice of MUNI, BART and the Ferries. For the third time...not a big surprise that the park doesn't revolve around convenient parking in a city like SF.
In short, it's the best ball park EVER!!!
GET SKINNY!. I LIVE HERE IN THE BAY AND I BEEN TO THE PARK A FEW TIMES MOSTLY FOR MONSTER TRUCK SHOWS AND MOTORCROSS. NOW I'M 6'2" AND 260LBS AND I HATE THIS PARK DUE TO THE FACT THE SEATS ARE MADE FOR THIN SHORT PEOPLE. 60% OF AMERICA IS A LITTLE OVER WEIGHT BUT I GUESS IN SAN FRANCISCO THEY EXPECT EVERYONE IS GOING TO BE A GAY FIT GUY. WELL I'M NOT GAY NOR IN TOP SHAPE BUT I CAN TELL YOU I'M NO FATTY. I COULD NOT GET COMFORTABLE IN THESE LOUSY CLOSE AS CAN BE TO THE PERSON NEXT TO AND FRONT OF YOU GARBAGE SEATS. IF 3 FAT GUYS HAD TO SIT NEXT TO EACH OTHER..... WELL NEVERMIND CAUSE IT COULDN'T HAPPEN! MY MOTHER IN LAW HAD TO STAND CAUSE SHE HAS BIG HIPS AND THAT IS JUST UPSETTING. NOW WE ARE OAKLAND A'S FANS AND WE GO TO AT LEAST 10 GAMES A YEAR AND SHE NEVER HAS HAD A PROBLEM AT OAKLAND COLOSIUM. AT&T PARK IS NICE BUT IS VERY OVER RATED IN MY EYES. FOOD STANDS ARE WEAK AND SMALL AND THE SELECTIONS I SEE ARE NOT TOO BIG. I TRY TO AVOID AT&T PARK AT ALL COST ONLY BECAUSE THE SEATS ARE VERY VERY VERY UNCOMFORTABLE AND UNFAIR TO PEOPLE WHO EITHER ARE BIG OR HAVE A BIG BUTT LIKE MOST OF AMERICA. SO IF YOUR BIG FIND OUT IF THEY HAVE WIDE SEATS BEFORE YOU GET TICKETS OR PREPARE TO STAND MOST OF THE TIME. PARKING IS NOT SO GREAT EITHER. I PREFER TO STAY AT THE RUN DOWN OAKLAND COLOSIUM THAN GO TO THE NEW AT&T PARK ANYDAY. BUT THATS JUST MY OPINION.
Fans go out to the ballgame in grand style at this awesome stadium..
Built by and for the Giants, this is one of the country's most stunning ballparks. Relatively intimate, the park holds 41,000--large enough for a big-league feel, but small enough to make the fans feel like they're part of the action. Stands are built along the base paths and center field is wide open, offering dramatic views of sailboats in San Francisco Bay. Sluggers frequently send homers straight into McCovey Cove.
Met Fan on the road. This place is great! Too good for Giant fans. The only negative & it's a small one was that through 5 innings not one hot dog vendor made their way to my section ( upper level behind home plate ). Female public address announcer " nice, not bad"
SBC Park great for kids. My kids had a great time playing in the mini sbc park - good concessions - easy to get to using public transportation - great location on the bay
They Really got it Right!!.
Living in Chicago, we have one of the BEST yards in ALL of baseball, but they incorporated all of the great things a ballpark should have. Spectacular views in every direction. Fan-friendly 'toys' behind left field bleachers. The grass looked liked a carpet!!
Well mannicured field. Great experience!! Go to Golden Gate, ride the cable cars, walk in Muir Woods, visit Haight/Ashbury, and don't miss an opportunity to take in a Giants game!!
