About the Outing

zoo group

San Diego's "City Park" was established in 1868 and later renamed to Balboa Park in 1910 in preparation for the World's Fair, which was hosted here in 1915. At 1200 acres, Balboa Park is the largest urban park in the U.S.  It is home to 17 museums as well as the world famous San Diego Zoo. 

We will camp in a quiet corner of Balboa Park.  We'll have an opportunity to hike and explore the park and surrounding neighborhoods that will provide you with a new connection to America's Finest City. Hopefully this exploration will provide you with some skills and inspiration to continue exploring the unique and diverse neighborhoods of San Diego.
