In addition to Balboa Park’s attraction as a cultural destination, its horticulture makes it a place to cherish for its physical beauty as well. Some of the most quoted observations by visitors to the 1915 Exposition, along with those of today, are comments about the lush greenery and exquisite flowers. Several years ago, the Friends of Balboa Park, which preserves Balboa Park’s legacy through park-wide projects, developed a privately funded seasonal display program to show off the park’s horticulture within the Botanical Building, which boasts gorgeous plants and ongoing displays. Stop in this month to be enchanted by Easter lilies amidst permanent beauties. (www.friendsofbalboapark.org)
