SAN DIEGO CITY’S FAVORITE PARK

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2021  |  12 – 1PM  |  ZOOM

About the Event

Set aside as City park in 1868, today’s Balboa Park has undergone a multitude of changes in its 150 years. Once a series of mesas filled with native growth, the park now boasts manicured gardens, miles of trails, and world famous museums. In this presentation, learn how the Park has evolved and discover some of its less famous uses.
