Balboa Park San Diego
Balboa Park in San Diego
Balboa Park is one of my very favorite places in town. The land was gifted a long time ago to the city with the condition that it has to be available to the public forever. No selling to the highest bidder!
Most people equate Balboa Park with the part where all the museums, fountains and cafes are. The style of the buildings is kind of Sapnish style and was chosen for a world fair that came to San Diego in 1935, I believe.
We are lucky that the city council at various times decided to keep the building up and they are now housing many Museums. On Tuesdays, some are always open to the public free of charge.
When my kids were little, the first Tuesday of the month used to be free day. All the Museums were open. We came every month and it was a huge part of our homeschooling experience.
This picture was taken on earth day a year ago and we are looking west toward the clock tower of the Museum of Man. Every weekend, it is busy like you see in this picture - there are no vendors on normal days. But plenty of artist, street performers, tarot readers, and people sharing their believes.
If you ever come to San Diego, make sure to visit Balboa Park.
