Balboa Park Botanical Garden May 13, 2010
No matter what time of year it is Balboa Park is a great place in San Diego to visit if you have time on your hands. One of my favorite places at Balboa Park is the Botanical Garden. One of the best parts is that it is FREE to visit. (The whole park is free to hang out in but museums cost $).
You will be able to spot the Botanical Garden versus the others in the area by the large lath structure that encompasses the large fresh area of flowerness inside. Upon approach is the Lily Pond, it helps set the tranquil nature within the structure in my opinion. Or it could have been the Michael Boltonesque saxophone player out front..hmm
The garden was originally built for the 1915-1916 Exposition; the garden has a nice showing of seasonal flowers as well as long term flowers that live out their daily lives in San Diego. It helps to pay attention to each type of flower and read the names, your imagination can do the rest.
