Where Do The Giants Play Their Home Games?
Located on the waterfront at 24 Willie Mays Plaza, Oracle Park provides some of the best views of any stadium in the country due to its position overlooking McCovey Cove and San Francisco Bay. It opened in 2000 as Pacific Bell Park (later renamed to SBC Park in 2003), renamed to AT&T Park in 2006, and finally to Oracle Park in 2019.
The stadium features a rural setting with a blend of traditional field elements such as brick walls and lights that mimic nearby San Francisco landmarks, including Coit Tower and Victorian homes on Alamo Square.
