"Japanese Friendship Garden" Balboa Park Tip by Phalaenopsis03
Balboa Park, San Diego: 124 reviews and 260 photos
Adjacent to the Spreckels Organ Pavilion, the Japanese Friendship Garden is currently a small two-acre space that includes a Zen garden, a koi pond, a bonsai exhibit, and an exhibit house (see attached photo). During the weekends, classes are offered in sushi-making, bonsai, calligraphy, and conversational Japanese. Due to its limited size, the Japanese Friendship Garden is scheduled for expansion to make it nine acres. Not sure when that will be completed though.
Hours: Mon. to Fri., 10am – 5pm; Sat. to Sun., 10am to 4pm. Entrance fee: I forgot, but it was a few dollars.
Address: 1549 El Prado, San Diego, CA
Directions: On the grounds of Balboa Park, adjacent to the Spreckels Organ Pavilion.
