Very few people know the park as well as Balboa Park Visitors Center staff and volunteers. Now you can hear a full one-hour expert overview of the park’s history and attractions during a leisurely walking tour of the park’s Central Mesa. Filled with amusing anecdotes, little-known facts, and eye-fulls of gorgeous scenery, the 11am tours are the perfect complement to a day exploring other free cultural offerings in the park on Residents Free Days. Tours meet at the Visitor Center at 11:00 am, every Tuesday and 2nd, 4th & 5th Friday of the month.

Call (619) 239-0512 or email tours@balboapark.org for more information. Custom group tours are also available. Contact Visitors Center for pricing and scheduling.
