“If you are trying to solve a problem, and you want to see many different possible outcomes, sometimes moving it offers you an array of possibilities,” Bradley said. “Some of them are silly, and goofy, and you go, ‘OK, that’s not working.’ And some of them are like, ‘Wow, I wouldn’t have thought of that otherwise.’ ”

The Balboa Park Sustainability Program is dedicated to advancing solutions that help protect Balboa Park's resources and strengthen economic viability, while enhancing visitor experience and enjoyment.
Introduction
The Balboa Park Cultural Partnership’s Balboa Park Sustainability Program's purpose is to educate, measure, promote and implement sustainability best practices in Balboa Park as well as strategically plan, coordinate and complete deferred maintenance initiatives.

Balboa Park is fast becoming a cornerstone for other cities to watch. Through collaboration and ongoing communication, the Sustainability Program has developed a shared vision for “greening” Balboa Park. It continues to advance solutions that will help protect Park resources and strengthen economic viability, while enhancing visitor experience and enjoyment.

The Sustainability Program is a collaborative effort between the Balboa Park Cultural Partnership, the City of San Diego, and San Diego Gas & Electric. This collaboration is supported by an alliance of Partnership members, Park stakeholders, and Sustainability experts. Together, we aim to establish Balboa Park as an exemplary model of sustainability for the 2015 Centennial Celebration.
