Balboa Park is one of the largest and most diverse urban parks in the United States.

The Prado is the hub of the activity in the park's cultural center: a wide walkway between the historic buildings and museums which attract so many of the park's visitors.

In 1915, the site was the focus of much of the activity for the Panama-California Exposition and the star of the show that year were the Electriquettes--small wicker carts powered by electric motors––which visitors used to travel the Prado.

Now the Electriquettes return and you can rent one yourself.
