Bay to Park Paseo

What and Where


The Bay to Park Paseo is led by volunteer designers, artists, and storytellers to create a unique and engaging 1.7-mile impermanent pedestrian experience on Park Boulevard from the San Diego Bay to Balboa Park at Presidents Way. The Paseo was originally envisioned by the notable urban planner, John Nolen, to the City of San Diego in 1908 and has been an unfulfilled dream of many in the design community. It passes many of the city’s beloved places through downtown’s East Village neighborhood including the Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge, Petco Park, the Central Library, UC San Diego Park & Market, NewSchool of Architecture & Design, IDEA1, City College, and San Diego High School. 


The Paseo is open to everyone, and tours of the project will be available throughout 2024.
