The buildings in this park were originally built as temporary facades for a world's fair, but after the fair, the citizens of San Diego vowed to make them real. They still look sort of fake, but real they are, and they are full of local civic events. Dances, puppet shows, concerts, you name it.
The green space is very nice, but not outstanding.
