Balboa Park Then and Now

  • Aired: 06/10/2015

  • Rating: NR
Balboa Park as we know it today is largely the result of the 1915 Panama California Exposition. This rare look at a collection of books, photos, and other documents from a century ago, allows us to see how some things, like plants, trees, and even the famous San Diego Zoo have changed dramatically in The Park, while many familiar buildings are still much as they were back then.
