San Diego Floral Association
Save the Date for SDFA’s Annual Historic Garden Tour
Join San Diego Floral Association on May 17, 2014, (the weekend after Mother’s Day) for a delightful day of gardens, history and discovery in University Heights.
SDFA’s annual “garden tour with a difference” ventures into this distinctive San Diego neighborhood as it celebrates its 125th anniversary. Anchored by a charming business district along Park Boulevard and Adams Avenue, the neighborhood is full of carefully tended historic homes representing every architectural style of the past century.
One of San Diego’s oldest communities, University Heights spreads across a mesa overlooking Mission Valley. It was home to the famed Mission Cliff Gardens, an ostrich farm, an experiment with silkworm production and a State Normal School. A neighborhood sign in the shape of a trolley car celebrates the area’s history as a destination for the trolley line running from downtown San Diego.
On the day of the tour, Old Trolley Barn Park on Adams Avenue will feature a garden market place of artisans and garden vendors. Tickets and maps also will be available at the park on tour day.
