Balboa Park in San Diego – A Plant-Smart Living Exhibit

One of the unexpected treasures of San Diego discovered during out 2015 trip out West was Balboa Park. This is a huge area filled with lots to see and lots to do. No doubt, we at Plant Smart Living spent quite a lot of time exploring the beautiful use of nature as is exemplified in the Japanese Zen Garden and the Arboretum, but there were also other man-made sites to see that are too cool to ignore.

Considering the pure scale of the place, we also created a separate photo collage that we’d love for you to check out about our trip around the San Diego Zoo (which is actually harbored in Balboa Park!). Feel free to check out that story and collection of photographs HERE.

Balboa Park is immense and I have realized that we only really touched the surface regarding things to see and do there. If I ever was to return to San Diego, I would without a doubt spend another day or two easily just exploring this little slice of nature in this highly urbanized setting.
