Description: Major decisions had to be made before securing funds for the 1915 Panama California Exposition. Decisions like the park's location, what architectural design to choose and would the park be an open space concept. Balboa Park and its buildings would be described as a magical wonderland. The Expo would put San Diego on the international map but there would be major obstacles to overcome. In the end, the 1915 Expo was so successful it was extended a second year, attracting a total of 3.7 million visitors. Join Host Elsa Sevilla for the new 1915 Expo Centennial Series - San Diego's Historic Places.
