Petco Park Tour (short version)
by Score Bard
The Padres' moved into Petco Park in 2004. Along with the move,
they have a new logo with new colors.
The new colors are blue, white, and sand. The California missions that
housed the original Padres were either white or a sandy brown color.
The blue ocean, white foam, and sandy beaches of San Diego make this
a natural color scheme for the Padres to choose.
I visited Petco Park on April 15th, and was impressed how the
architects used these three colors throughout Petco Park.
The architects also had to incorporate some other elements, such as
green grass and red bricks. The integration of these themes produced
some mixed results.
But overall, Petco Park is an impressive new home for the Padres.
My tour is organized by theme.
We begin with Sand
