This is one of the best city parks we've ever seen. Very different form Central Park in NYC but the perfect flavor for San Diego. We only spent about 2 hours wandering around but one could easily spend the whole day if you wanted to spend some more time in each of the areas....and that's not even going to the zoo. Some of the buildings were closed so we were not able to see everything there is to offer but we enjoyed just the vibe of the park, the lush trees and beautiful buildings. Yet another must stop in San Diego

If you love history & beautiful architecture this is a must see. It was lit up at night with Christmas colors. They also had a large Whoville tree set up.

Everything is awesome, is a nice walk around the village and different venues, so sad we had to endure the closing due to the pandemic.

Always a great park to walk around in. People mostly spread out and if got close out their mask on. So nice to be out walking around. I did notice a lot more homeless people this visit as compared to my last one a year ago
