New Moreton Bay Fig Tree viewing platform

Nonprofit Friends of Balboa Park hosted a ribbon cutting for the iconic Moreton Bay fig tree project to unveil the decking and fencing around the historic tree believed to be the oldest in Balboa Park. This latest park enhancement completed by the Friends was the culmination of a four-year effort that cost $500,000, accomplished almost exclusively through private philanthropic support. Located between The Natural History Museum and Spanish Village, the tree measures in at a staggering 78 feet tall and is among the largest of its kind in California. The tree had been fenced off to the public since 1989 due to previous damage to the roots.
