Horton Plaza Park takes its name from the original owner of the property, Alonzo Horton, who sold the land in 1890 to the city of San Diego. The park remained a gathering place over the next century and then in 2011, the city and Westfield Group began the renovation of the archaic park. Today, the space contains an amphitheater, historic Broadway Fountain, food and beverage pavilions and its connected to the Westfield Shopping Center.
This theater complex is a state-of-the-art, popular venue for unusual arts presentations, and is the primary home of the prestigious San Diego Repertory Theatre. Located under Horton Plaza, the complex is comprised of three stages: the medium-sized Space Theater; the larger, aptly-named Stage Theater; and the small Underground Stage, each offering different presentations. Each holiday season, the Repertory presents 'A Christmas Carol', which has become a tradition for San Diego families. Show your ticket for free all-day validated parking at the Horton Plaza parking structures. A practical tip would be to pay close attention to which painted fruit or vegetable symbolizes the level on which you have parked, so you can easily find your car later.
Referred to by locals as 'The Rep', this dynamic theater is located in the top-notch Lyceum Theatre at Horton Plaza, in the heart of downtown, adjacent to the Gaslamp District. Plays range from seasonal standbys, such as 'A Christmas Carol' to the hottest plays, such as 'Bandido'. Performances are either created by artists-in-residence at the Rep or out of state shows premiering for the first time on the West Coast. The Rep also produces ethnically diverse shows such as the annual Nations of San Diego International Dance Festival. Ticket prices vary, so contact the theatre for details.
