About Us: My name is Anita Mercado. Before starting this business, I was a teacher at a local public school. Although I absolutely loved teaching my primary students, after 32 years, it was time to retire. At every stage of my life, Balboa Park has been a constant venue, so it was only natural that I returned to my beloved Park. I began volunteering at Balboa Park Visitor Center in 2012. In 2015, started working as a Visitor Engagement Associate at San Diego History Center. This museum has an abundance of resources that helped me research and fulfill my desire to continue learning about many aspects of the park. When Balboa Park Conservancy began providing Tuesday’s tours and customized tours, I volunteered to lead them. Nothing makes me happier than teaching interested visitors about Balboa Park. It is my joy and pleasure to host guests in Tour Balboa Park.
