La Mesa Recreation and Parks
La Mesa, east of San Diego, has great outdoor trails and is near Mission Trails Park, one of the best places in the county for hiking, biking, and enjoying the San Diego sun. For other recreation, Lemon Grove is near Downtown San Diego which features Balboa Park and its museums such as the Natural History Museum, San Diego Historical Society, Science Museum, and other smaller, unique museums such as the Museum of Model Railroads. The quiet ambience and old world architecture makes Balboa Park a great place to spend the day with the family or for visiting at night for a play at the Old Globe theater. With a professional baseball team, San Diego offers Downtown's Petco Park as America's newest urban Major League baseball stadium. Home to the San Diego Padres, the ballpark has great seating, modern amenities and panoramic views of San Diego Bay.
