CHECK OUT OUR GUIDE ON ALL THE HIDDEN GEMS IN BALBOA PARK FOR AN AMAZING DAY TRIP!

 

The historic Old Cactus Garden was developed under the direction of Kate Sessions for the 1935 California Pacific International Exposition. It contains some of the largest cactus and succulent specimens in the Park and has also been developed to include the exotic African and Australian Protea plants. It is located on the west side of the Balboa Park Club.

Personal Experience: There are so many interesting and beautiful spots to explore in San Diego. Many that you possibly had no clue existed unless you were really poking around all corners. This is one of those spots. It's located above Palm Canyon, in fact, there's a trail that connects these two spots. I am still trying to figure out what that old, stone ruin once was. Anyone know?

Balboa Park is so lovely. Every inch of it, I swear. What's even lovelier is it's actually quite large, with so many secretive crevices to discover!
