Life In South Park
Most notably South Park real estate finds itself near to the famous Balboa Park. The urban park spans 1,200 acres and provides residents of the surrounding region with plenty of recreation options. The many greenspaces and walking paths that crisscross the area make a great space for people to walk their dogs and enjoy the warm weather. The park also contains master-landscaped gardens, several shopping spaces, and seventeen museums including:
- Museum of Photographic Arts
- San Diego Air & Space Museum
- San Diego Hall of Champions
- San Diego Model Railroad Museum
- San Diego Art Institute
As such, whether you are passionate about sports, art, transportation, or history, you’ll find no shortage of engaging subject matter to explore at Balboa Park. Of course, the most famous attraction in Balboa Park is the San Diego Zoo. This impressive institution is home to more than 3,500 animals spanning more than 650 species. Founded in 1916, the San Diego Zoo was one of the first in the world to use open-air cageless exhibits that aim to recreate the animals’ natural habitats.
South Park is also a great place for locals to build careers. Since the 1990s, South Park has been establishing itself as a hub of charming independent businesses. Those with small businesses might consider opening their doors in South Park. Additionally, because of its prime location near the heart of the city, those who work downtown in the Gaslamp Quarter or even the North Island Naval Air State will find they are no more than a short fifteen-minute commute from their work.
