In 1868 San Diego’s founders carved out a large swath of undeveloped land to create this majestic public park, just outside of downtown. Although Balboa Park’s fanciful buildings and road system were largely developed for two expositions in 1915-16 and 1935-36, the park is equally notable for its mature botanical collection and beautiful gardens. Come explore this San Diego treasure with us and enjoy the beautiful park that we love.
