Historypin: Balboa Park Then & Now

A Photographic History of the Park

To celebrate the Centennial of the 1915-1916 Panama-California Exposition and the 100-year history of the Park, we have partnered with Historypin to create an interactive historic map of Balboa Park. Through Historypin, you can upload historical content to Google Maps as images, movies, audio records and stories where it is geo-tagged and dated.

Explore Our Tours and Collections

As we add historical images, we'll create collections of particular aspects of Balboa Park such as architecture, gardens, and attractions.
