The Balboa Park Conservancy was formed in 2011 as a public-benefit 501(c)3 nonprofit organization to provide expertise, advocacy and resources to envision, enhance and sustain Balboa Park for all visitors in partnership with the City of San Diego and in collaboration with other organizations in the Park and the community..
Since its formation, the Conservancy has worked with the City of San Diego Park and Recreation Department and other partners to plant trees, reactivate and turn the Plaza de Panama into one of San Diego’s primary public gathering spots, and host the annual December Nights holiday festival, among other projects. The Conservancy is data-driven, completing a much needed Tree Inventory, and Economic Benefit Study and a Cultural Landscape Report. The Conservancy is working to restore and revitalize the 100-year-old Botanical Building and gardens.
