Ken Kramer's About San Diego

The Panama California Exposition of 1915, Balboa Park

Clip: Season 2 | 2m 31s

As the centerpiece of San Diego, Balboa Park is more than the largest urban cultural park in the nation. It is living proof of the audacity and determination of San Diego, a city of just 40,000 people a century ago, to build and host an incredibly ambitious party, and invite the world to attend. Take a look at how the Exposition of 1915 not only changed Balboa Park, but everything about San Diego.
