Fun San Diego fact: In 1935 a nudist colony called Zoro Garden once resided where the Butterfly Gardens are now. They lounged around in their "colony", played volleyball and other games, and performed a quasi-religious "Sacrifice to the Sun God" five times a day. Of course, since some people just can't bear to see others comfortable with themselves and having fun, protests came from the San Diego Council of Catholic Women, the Women's Civic Center, the San Diego Braille Club, and other "amateur nudists". It came to a head when one of them rode through Balboa Park on a mule and was arrested, but she was "acquitted and rode again under police supervision." So now if you try to get naked in the butterfly garden, you get arrested. Thanks Braille Club. #sandiego #balboapark .
