What a shame. A considerable section of this famous park has been badly ignored.
The rest is okay but my lasting memory will be one of disappointment.

There's lots to do in Balboa Park and The Prado Restaurant is quite special. We even attended this restaurant for Easter Sunday Brunch. Terrific!!

Just a beautiful park to spend a sunny day with many activities going on and many buildings and museums to visit.

It's an oasis in San Diego and worth the drive to just stroll the Promenade,take the $5 self-guided walking tour with audio, visit museums, see an Imax film or enjoy Happy hour or a meal at the Prado or Japanese Restaurant. I take family, friends & visitors here often. Locals may enjoy the free entry to various museums on Tues. Check online for free organ concerts outdoors, catch a play at the Old Globe, or for other events. It's a Gem !
