  • The Alcazar Garden with snapdragons, manicured shrubs and fountains is nestled between beautiful buildings in Balboa Park. It is a nice area to sit and reflect or rest while visiting the park.

  • When walking around the park, this garden pops out and you have to stop and enjoy. It is small compared to the rest of the park, but a welcome retreat. Lots varied plants which some are in bloom...

  • A small garden, that it. Nothing else. It will take 15 minutes to cover. You may get some good photos here.
  • beautiful and fantastic place to visit with family,friedns,etc... love this place a lot and highly recommended although I felt like became a princess at mid age :D
  • It was beautiful!! Best part of all free parking. This was a perfect place after brunch.
  • I absolutely love this spot so much! It’s a hidden gem in the vast networks of gardens and plazas within the entirety of Balboa Park. I’m a landscape architect and such a nerd for landscapes so I did some research on this garden. Here’s some history on Alcazar Garden. It was named because its design is patterned after the gardens of Alcazar Castle in Seville, Spain, lies adjacent to the Art Institute and Mingei Museum. It is known for its ornate fountains, exquisite turquoise blue, yellow, and green Moorish tiles and shady pergola. This formal garden, bordered by boxwood hedges, is planted with 7,000 annuals for a vibrant display of color throughout the year. The garden has been reconstructed to replicate the 1935 design by San Diego architect Richard Requa. I also recommend coming here at night as there is phenomenal landscape lighting setting the mood and the vibe for a mystical evening experience.
  • I entered here accidentally and was attracted by various flowers here. There are many varieties of flowers from roses, cherry to many unknown names. There is also a small fountain. The whole garden us surrounded by walls and building so I think it’s private garden in the beginning. A nice place to go
