Visitors Center

The Visitors Center is located adjacent to the Plaza de Panama and inside of the House of Hospitality, in the heart of Balboa Park.


With stops in or near three major parking lots, the free Balboa Park Tram loops around the cultural district throughout the day to get you within a 10-minute walk to many of the Park’s most popular destinations. Trams pick up/drop off every 8 to 10 minutes (at peak times, 20-40 minutes) at each of the 5 stops.

The tram makes five stops, including at the Inspiration Point parking lot one of the largest lots in the park – as well as the most popular Plaza de Panama, in the heart of Balboa Park.

From November 1 through May 31, the hours of tram operation are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Summer tram hours, which are in effect from June 2 to Oct. 31, are from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
