What most people don’t know is that Balboa Park in San Diego, California is the largest urban park in the United States. Also one of the oldest public recreation sites in the US, Balboa Park’s 1400 acres were set aside in 1868 as citizens declared they wanted a piece of this beautiful land preserved for future generations.
