AT&T Park, the first privately financed Major League ballpark to be built in 38 years, is a classic urban ballpark with an old-time feel that was inspired by Wrigley Field and Fenway Park. This $357 million park is conveniently located to almost all public transit system servicing the San Francisco Bay area. A waterfront promenade allows free views of the game just beyond the right-field fence. The playing field is composed of a Kentucky bluegrass blend, with a crushed volcanic rock infield and rubberized tartan-surface warning track.
Soak up the scene:
AT&T Park opened in 2000 to high praise for its classic look and feel, excellent sightlines and eclectic food offerings including the famous garlic fries. Besides all the amenities of a modern ballpark, there are great views of the bay from the upper deck and the opportunity to explore one of the coolest cities anywhere right outside the gates. And just beyond the right-field wall is McCovey Cove, the spot where locals invented one of the newest and most unique traditions in baseball, bobbing in their kayaks as they await home run balls.
