Alcazar Garden, named because it?s design is patterned after the gardens of Alcazar Castle in Seville, Spain. Spanish style fountains made with all kinds of colored Moorish tiles, flowers galore, and stylized, manicured boxwood hedges dominate this garden, so named for the 1935 Exposition after the Spanish gardens of Alcazar Castle.

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.

Its original name, from the 1915 Exposition, was Montezuma Garden.

More than 7,500 annuals and perennials bloom in the garden throughout the year including delphiniums, pansies, begonias, calendula, dahlias and Iceland poppies.

Getting there:
  • Alcazar Garden is centrally located in Balboa Park, adjacent to the House of Charm, across from the Sculpture Garden.
  • Take Hwy 163 south to Park Blvd, go left at the stop light then left onto President?s Way, which is the next stop light. Make another right at Pan American Road East. There is a small parking lot next the Alcazar Garden or you may park behind the Organ Pavilion.
  • You can also take the Balboa Park Tram to the Prado stop and walk west to the House of Charm and Alcazar Garden.


More Information:
Alcazar Garden also has a small parking lot (one-way access), perfect if you're arriving a bit early for theater performances at the nearby Globe Theatres.

Note: A good place to start if you don't know the park well, is the Visitor's Center in the House of Hospitality in the heart of the Prado.
