San Diego City’s Favorite Park

On the second Tuesday of each month, watch a presentation at 1:00 pm in our Thornton Theater.


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 covered in native plant life, the park now boasts several well-known gardens and museums. Learn how the Park has evolved in this presentation, and discover some of its less famous uses.

Presented by: Samantha Alberts, San Diego History Center Manager of Community Learning
