Today, I invite you to take a virtual walk through the majestic Balboa park in San Diego. A cultural oasis that includes 17 museums, several performing arts venues and lovely gardens
At 1,200 acres, Balboa Park is one of North America’s most iconic urban parks and a must see on any visit to San Diego.
Spanish Colonial Architecture
Unlike many other famous urban parks, it is renowned for its combination of nature and architecture - Spanish Colonial architecture. The California Building and its tower, the Spreckels Organ Pavilion, and the "temporary" buildings along El Prado have stirred the souls of San Diegans for over 90 years.
The peak blooming period is January through March; however, these plants are interesting at any time of year because of their unusual shapes.
The Desert Garden was established at the Park Blvd. location in 1976 and contains more than 1,300 plants, including succulents and drought-resistant plants from around the world, within its 2.5 acres.
The Lily Pond
The Lily Pond is located right in the middle of Balboa Park in front of the Botanical Building with fish, flowers, and beautiful lily pads.
Balboa Park offers a variety of entertainment and music in the park. From concerts and musicals at the Starlight Bowl to Street 'buskers' including musicians, magicians, jugglers, mimes on guitar or saxophone.
