Every 2nd & 4th Friday during 2015 and every 3rd Friday during 2016

Step back in time and experience one of the most engaging places in Balboa Park: the historic Botanical Building. During this centennial celebration, 45-minute docent-led tours showcase the origins, design, and horticulture of the park’s jewel: its 1915 lath house. Learn the fascinating story of English immigrant and world-renowned begonia expert, Alfred D. Robinson—the visionary behind the building. Tours will be given on the second and fourth Friday of each month at 11am; and in 2016 every third Friday of each month at 11am. Tours will leave from the south end of the Lily Pond. Free and open to the public.

Hosted by the San Diego Floral Association.
