The North Park Historical Society (NPHS) gives guided walking tours “on demand” of different parts of North Park including the commercial core centered around 30th and University, the Burlingame Historic District, the Hamilton Street area near the North Park Recreation Center, and the North Park Dryden Historic District. Tours except for Burlingame include a souvenir booklet. NPHS also conducts tours of the Morley Field Recreation Area of Balboa Park. Most tours cost $10 a person. There is no set fee for the Morley Field tour but donations are accepted. Note that tours of the residential historic districts are exteriors only. We do not go inside any homes and do not have access to any public restrooms during the tour.
The North Park Dryden Historic District encompasses the area along 28th Street and Pershing Avenue from Upas Street to Landis Street. The district has 136 homes; 104 are considered contributing.
NPHS would be pleased to conduct a tour for your private group or educational group upon request. Contact NPHS at 619-294-8990 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on setting up a tour.
