Balboa Park Sustainability Program

Balboa Park is fast becoming a touchstone for other cities to watch. Through collaboration and ongoing communication, the Sustainability Program has developed a shared vision for “greening” Balboa Park. It continues to advance solutions that will help protect Park resources and strengthen economic viability, while enhancing visitor experience and enjoyment. Read More.


"I am very proud of the progress that has been made in the Park over the last few years.  The Balboa Park Cultural Partnership has provided leadership through collaboration which has helped bring this issue to the forefront.  With the help of corporate sponsors like San Diego Gas and Electric, the partnership with the City of San Diego and numerous Park stakeholders, we have succeeded in making sustainability a TOP priority in the Park." - Councilman Todd Gloria
