Tips from locals
Balboa Park has so much to offer, beautiful scenery, museums, ethnically diverse, historically rich, culturally abundant! Get lost in time exploring!
Walk around this historic park to see museums and amazing architecture from the historic missions of San Diego. Great for a day adventure !
right off of downtown. It’s hard to believe, but our very own Balboa Park is actually bigger than the more famous Central Park in New York City. Even more surprising is Balboa Park is nearly double the acreage. Central park only has 842 acres. home to many gorgeous museums
The finest urban park in America! Balboa Park is a major center of culture, science, art, theater, music and sports in a beautiful setting. There is a Japanese Garden, a blooming Lily Pond... Balboa Park remains a inspiration!
Always a fun and memorable! The BEST scenery for photographers and to take family photos. Don't forget to go across the street to smell the flowers and see unique plants and trees.
