Your Park. Our Passion.

The Friends of Balboa Park was born out of the same commitment to civic-minded philanthropy that motivated San Diego’s leaders in the early part of the last century.


Our Park & youth programs reflect a set of fundamental values.


We support events and activities that promote Balboa Park’s historical significance, achievements, cultural heritage, architecture, and natural beauty. 


Our projects are designed to honor Balboa Park’s celebrated past, improve access, and lay the groundwork for a secure future.
