Neighborhoods east of Balboa Park provide a different perspective on our city and on the park itself. The San Diego Floral Association, San Diego’s oldest Garden Association, presents its annual “garden tour with a difference” from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, May 18. You will have the opportunity to explore eight gardens in these charming and historic neighborhoods. Vendors in a garden marketplace on the day of the tour will offer arts and crafts. Tickets are $20 ($25 day of the tour) and will soon be available at local San Diego nurseries and online through the Floral Association website

Developed after San Diego announced plans for the 1915 Panama California Exposition, Burlingame and North Park have been revitalized in recent decades. Residents take pride in their gardens and in the eclectic neighborhood architecture. Streets are lined with expertly renovated homes in craftsman, Tudor revival, Spanish revival, Prairie, and mission styles. The Burlingame Historic District is distinguished by its rose-colored sidewalks and curvilinear streets.
