As far as ballparks go, it doesn’t get much prettier than AT&T Park. The downtown venue comes with picturesque sight lines; a clear view of the pier, the boats and the San Francisco Bay. If you’re lucky, you’ll see a lefty pull a ball up over the 24-foot brick wall and watch it splash into McCovey Cove. The aquatic backdrop provides exactly the setting you want when you’re watching a baseball game in the City by the Bay.
Even better for Giants fans: the team ain’t bad either. The reigning World Series champions are coming off their second title in three seasons, winning one in 2010 for the first time since the Giants moved out west from New York. The on-field product had been on the rise for San Francisco since the late-90’s with Barry Bonds. By the time the Giants moved into their new digs in 2000, they were competing for the playoffs year-in and year-out. San Francisco even reached the World Series in 2003 and was a game away from lifting the trophy before ultimately falling short to the Angels in seven games. The Giants would turn that corner in 2010 with a championship, and their next one just two seasons after cemented their status as the most successful baseball franchise of the young decade.
So what do you get when you have a perennial championship contender playing in a gorgeous ballpark? Lots of fans driving into the China Basin looking for Giants parking. AT&T Park attendance has ranked in the top-5 since 2011, creating a mass convergence for every home game. Like most other downtown stadiums, AT&T Park parking is decidedly scarce: there’s not much on-site Giants parking to speak of. This makes SF Giants parking a hit at ParkWhiz, with several lots to choose from, including a couple right across the street. Oh, and football fans can’t forget about the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl every December, another in-demand game college fans can turn to ParkWhiz for their AT&T Park Parking.
