Balboa Park is renowned for the lush landscaping and lovely gardens on its 1,200 acres, offering a magnificent backdrop for the cultural attractions. The Park was ranked among the Best Parks in the World by the Project for Public Places in 2003 (13 out of 24) for its mixture of horticulture and art and culture.
There are more than eight gardens in the Park, which include the lovely Alcazar Garden, the award-winning rose garden, the Japanese Friendship Garden, the desert garden and the historic Botanical Building. The City of San Diego’s Park and Recreation Department manages and maintains the grounds of this spectacular public resource.
Just look at the pictures. Dozens of blooming orchids in the Botanical House and trees throughout the whole park – gorgeous! We took over 100 Pictures. Please find here a selection:
