First Time to the Balboa Park Rube Powell Archery Range?


This unique archery range sits on ~30 acres in the heart of beau­ti­ful Bal­boa Park. It is sur­round­ed by the 163 Free­way to the west, San Diego Zoo to the north, the Old Globe The­ater and Muse­um of Man to the east. The entrance to the Range is on the south side of the Cabril­lo Bridge (Lau­rel St.), near the SW cor­ner of the Alcazar Gar­dens Park­ing Lot.

It’s a walking course, just like a golf course.
Always walk in the proper direction!

The Balboa Range also has a small practice area at the entrance, with target butts at 10, 20, 30 and 40 yards.

The Bal­boa Range is open to the pub­lic from sun­rise to sun­set, 365 days/year for just a $2 day use fee. 14 tar­gets are open year-round (Tar­gets #15–28).

The remain­ing tar­gets are only open dur­ing tour­na­ments, held ~twice each month on the 1st & 3rd week­ends.

The first open tar­get (#15) is on the north side of the Cabril­lo Bridge, ~5–10 minute walk from the entrance/practice area.

Each tar­get has yardage mark­ers (tabs) vary­ing from ~20 feet to 80 yards, depend­ing on the tar­get. This is a NFAA-Cer­ti­fied course!

The Bal­boa Park Rube Pow­ell Archery Range and the Mor­ley Field Archery Range are both main­tained by vol­un­teers from the San Diego Archers (and non-mem­bers, too!)
