All activities are geared toward children and adults of all ages.
The park is located on San Diego Avenue and Twiggs Street in San Diego, and is conveniently located next to the Old Town Transit Center, just two blocks from the park at 4050 Taylor Street.
"Taste of the Past"
What we eat , how we acquire it, who prepares it, how it is prepared are part of our cultural make up. This day will explore what was part of the dining experiences for people in early San Diego. While learning about the foods of the past, attendees will be able to sample modern tastes that evoke that ti,e provided by the food purveyors in the park. There is a small fee to partake in the food tastings throughout the park this day.
