Catalyzing Positive Change in Balboa Park

Urban parks play a critical role in cities around the globe, improving people’s mental and physical health. They contribute to biodiversity, provide space for people to gather and enjoy nature, allow people to explore diverse cultures and histories, and provide opportunities for outdoor recreation.

Ensuring access to exceptional parks, now and into the future, requires a shared responsibility and a commitment of resources.

Balboa Park is an exceptional resource for our region’s residents and a tremendous asset for San Diego’s economic development. Balboa Park’s future depends on continuing to grow public support for the park through volunteerism, philanthropy, and advocacy. Providing equitable park access and inclusive experiences for regional and international visitors alike will build the park’s, and our City’s, international reputation.
