Visitor Center Free Park Tours

Free Weekly Park Walking Tours

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 Tuesdays.  Tours meet at the Visitor Center at 11:00 am, every Tuesday.
