Visitors to Balboa Park who stop in at the visitor center are sure to notice the water feature in the center of the courtyard between the El Prado Restaurant and the visitor center. The park, which has at times been called “The Jewel of San Diego” is truly that. This water feature is just one of many that enhance the beauty of the grounds. Centrally located, and with its gentle water sounds, the courtyard is a great place to hang out for a respite from a hard day of sightseeing!
If you come to San Diego, the park is definitely worth a day trip. It has museums for every interest and, even if you just want to hang out or walk, it’s a gem.
