Walk on the (Not-So) Wild Side

The event is hopes to raise awareness about landscape architects

Anyone who likes the open outdoors is going to love the month of April.

That’s because it’s “Landscape Architecture Month.” Architects are holding special events to raise awareness about the role they play in making San Diego a more beautiful place.

The American Society of Landscape Architects is offering four, free walking tours throughout San Diego on April 26 at noon.

The program is led by UC San Diego's senior landscape architect, who will discuss the value of walking and provide a brief history lesson on craftsmen who helped shape UCSD.

Urban Trails of La Mesa is a one hour walk focusing on one of the city’s existing paths.

The Balboa Park’s Trail System will prepare visitors for a unique journey, complete with maps of numerous trails to explore while being educated about the design process.

Carlsbad Coastal will host a walk highlighting trails from within The Crossing Golf Course, Veteran’s Park, Legoland, The Flower Fields esplanade along Armada Drive and the Agua Hedionda Lagoon Discovery Center.

Along the way landscape architects will provide an inside look and describe their role in creating some of North County’s unique outdoor recreational areas.
