    The centennial celebrations of Balboa Park continue to unfold in San Diego.

    To celebrate the anniversary, a trolley car with promotional wrap featuring the park was unveiled Wednesday at the 12th and Imperial Transit Center downtown.

    San Diego City Council member Todd Gloria presented the new trolley alongside the Balboa Park Conservancy Board President Carol Chang and the Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) Board Chairman Harry Mathis.

    The trolley features historic 1915 park photos as the backdrop for other images in honor of the anniversary.

    The wrapping was significant because of the MTS’ longstanding transit service to the city’s historic park. MTS has run trolleys to Balboa Park for more than 100 years. The new wrap celebrates that tradition and raises awareness of the Park’s historical value for those on the trains.
