Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge, San Diego, CA
Architect: Safdie Rabines Architects
This pedestrian bridge furthers the city’s 100 year-old vision of creating a Park-to-Bay Link, connecting two important regional icons: Balboa Park and the San Diego Bay. First envisioned in 1908 by urban planner John Nolen, the Park-to-Bay Link is intended to enhance pedestrian and trolley flow through the Park Boulevard corridor, a route south from the park to the waterfront.
