The Spreckels Organ Pavilion is located in Balboa Park, San Diego and is the largest outdoor venue for pipe organs. it is situated at the corner of the President’s Way and Pan American Road East in the park. It was donated to the people of Sa Diego by John. D. Spreckels in the early 1910s and thereafter used for public gatherings and events all free of cost. The San Diego Recreation Department organises free organ concerts every Sunday at 2 pm for everyone who wants to attend these. The organ pavilion has a large stage and a fountain which was added later to the place. The place has about 80 ranks of more than 5000 pipes which are used and are a sight for spectacle. The architecture of the pavilion is such that the building shields the pipes from the UV Radiation and prevents degradation. The place now includes bench seating and a dramatic Renaissance-Style wraparound archway flanking the giant musical instruments pipes.
