About Horton Plaza Park

On January 11, 2011, the San Diego City Council unanimously voted to approve a unique public-private partnership between Horton Plaza Park and the City of San Diego.

This plan created a world-class Urban Plaza as well as beautified and restored the historic park and fountain adjacent to this property, re-establishing it as the regional treasure that it was in the early-to-mid 1900’s.
