SDAS “Stars in the Park” picnic in the Balboa Park
Free event, bring your own blanket/chair, snacks, drinks
Join us for an early summer “Stars in the Park” SDAS picnic this Friday at 6:30 p.m. in Balboa Park as a chance to reconnect with old friends and greet new faces at SDAS. This is a free event open to anyone but especially for SDAS members. Our July meeting will be this picnic. Feel free to bring a blanket, a chair, something to snack on and something to drink. We will have casual discussions and spontaneous short presentations.
Meet us under the large Eucalyptus tree in the southeast corner of the courtyard outside the Botanical building (see attached map). There is parking directly behind the Botanical building, accessible via Village Place off of Park Boulevard. Follow Village Place around the curve and then turn right on Old Globe Way. There is often open parking here as few know about it. If parking is full, this is at least a good place to drop off any guests who find a long walk from another parking lot a barrier to attending.
Other parking options: if the park is particularly full, you can park in the old Naval Hospital parking lot (off President’s Way) and take the Park trolley into the center of the park, then it’s just a very short walk to where we will be.
The lot behind the Alcazar Gardens is close but often fills up early.
There is another lot behind the Natural History Museum, which is pretty close to where will be as well.
And there is the big lot behind the Spreckels Organ Pavilion.
Hope to see you there so we can catch up!
