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

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.

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!
