The melodious sounds from Spreckels Organ Pavilion float across San Diego’s Balboa Park, treating passersby to a spectacular sound symphony. The organ is one of the world’s largest outdoor pipe organs, set in a beautifully ornate structure and gifted to the city by John and Adolph Spreckels way back in 1914. In addition to its rich heritage, the unique design of the organ thrills visitors with its 4,725 ornately decorated pipes — the largest is 32 feet long! Stop by the pavilion on Sunday afternoon and enjoy a free weekly concert in the park. Summer concerts are especially popular in sunny San Diego.
Spreckels Organ Pavilion is located in the heart of Balboa Park, minutes away from downtown San Diego in California. The pavilion is capable of hosting up to 2,500 guests in its outdoor seating. While parking is available, driving and parking may be difficult during peak times — the park is accessible by public transportation as well. Visiting the pavilion is free, although prices for activities may vary.
