SDFA’s Annual Historic Garden Tour
Canyon Rims and Valley Views: Gardens of University Heights
Thank you for attending.
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
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.
