“As you save the natural resources, do not forget the cultural resources. The whole history of San Diego lies in Rose Canyon. Without the natural resource being preserved, there would be no cultural resources.”

Today we celebrate Rose Canyon as a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of a growing urban environment. Rose Canyon Open Space Park offers hiking trails, wildlife viewing and a place for friends and families to reconnect and relax. The Canyon was named for San Diego entrepreneur Louis Rose, and even during his time it was considered an idyllic place for a picnic.
A walk through Rose Canyon is also a walk through history from the beginnings of human habitation in the region, Spanish exploration, Californio rancheros, and early American entrepreneurial ventures to modern-day commerce. This exhibit explores the history of Rose Canyon, and you’re invited to visit this fascinating cultural landscape for yourself.”
