Balboa Park is home to 15 museums, various performing arts and international culture organizations as well as the San Diego Zoo. Balboa Park is the largest urban cultural park in the nation. You’ll discover internationally significant art treasures, exotic animal species, unique model trains, dinosaur fossils and mummies, world folk art, photography, sports memorabilia, rare aircraft and more. The stunning architecture in the park is the legacy of two Expositions, the 1915-1916 Panama-California Exposition and the 1935-1936 California Pacific International Exposition. Balboa Park is also renowned for the horticultural treasures on its 1,200 acres: brilliant displays of seasonal flowers, many themed gardens including an award-winning rose garden and a Japanese garden, rare and exotic plant species, shady groves of trees and green rolling lawns.
