Nonprofit Friends of Balboa Park is hosting a fundraiser featuring the Yale Whiffenpoofs, America's oldest collegiate a capella singing group, to benefit Friends’ newest Balboa Park improvement project: Reconstruction of the 1935 Palm Canyon Honeymoon Bridge. In 2018, Friends of Balboa Park began due diligence efforts on reconstruction of the 1935 Honeymoon Bridge, a log-truss foot bridge that spanned Balboa Park’s Palm Canyon for about twenty years until torn down sometime in the 1950s. The original bridge, designed by famed California architect Richard Requa, featured a number of whimsical elements, including mission-style bells with jade glass hung from shepherd’s hooks that served as lights and wood-plank walkways.
