  Plaza de Panama
by matcrazy1

Plaza in Spanish means square (town squre). Panama? I don't know execpt that it's a country well known of the Panama Canal hehe.

Never mind, Plaza de Panama is the central and very nice square/point of Balboa Park. The main street of the park El Prado is closed to traffic east of this square.

There are San Diego Museum of Art (on my picture), free Balboa Park Tram stop and small parking areas on the square.

Address: 1549 El Prado
Directions: North East of Downtown
Phone: (619) 239-0512
