Kate Sessions Garden that Time Forgot
Presented by Nancy Carol Carter

One of the most significant and historic gardens in Balboa Park cannot be found on any park map. It has become a relic, unknown to most and all but forgotten. Yet, it has a prominent location and an exciting origin story involving four famous horticulturists. This Kate Sessions garden deserves to be brought out of the shadows and given a place among the celebrated gardens of Balboa Park.
