After not knowing much at all about Hoyt Park I have finally received some great leads from my followers. Someone mentioned that it is most likely named after San Diego landscape architect Roland Hoyt.
Hoyt is notably responsible for helping with the design Presidio Park alongside the “Father of Balboa Park,” George Marston. Hoyt was a member of the San Diego Park Commission in the 1940’s and later served as the consulting landscape architect for San Diego’s Mission Bay Park. In 1960, Hoyt designed the landscape for the Salk Institute.
I was told that the town set this open space aside for the public after much development was done in the area. We explored in early February after some nice rainfall. This is a pretty, little forest and if you go in winter-late spring, there should be nice greenery. This is a nice hike for families and dog walks. Nothing crazy about it, just a leisurely walk.
We did one of our scavenger hunts here in 2018. We made an adorable fairy house and hid it in the woods! You can check out our past scavenger hunts here, and see if we have any currently going on here!
