Mission Hills Nursery draws from a long tradition of horticulture, as it was founded in 1910 by renowned green thumb and urban-green-space advocate Kate Sessions. Year after year, rows of roses, shrubs, and vegetables have sprung up under the staff's doting hands and dangled morsels of plant food. A section for gardening accessories equips yard workers with trowels, thorn strippers, and organic fertilizers to motivate crops without scourging them with caustic chemicals. In addition to tending to its plants, Mission Hills Nursery's staff arranges landscapes with garden-design services and teaches clients to arrange their own through gardening classes.

Sharpened ice skates trace paths around La Jolla Ice Town's icy interiors, offering a wintry change of pace from the temperate San Diego climate. Open seven days a week for open skate, the sports center spruces up laps around the rink with a live DJ paired with disco lights every Friday and Saturday night.
Professional coaches also tutor skaters on elegant stops, turns, and crossovers during figure-skating classes and teach athletes to maneuver pucks during youth and adult hockey clinics. Additionally, family-friendly activities, such as birthday parties, broomball, hockey games, and an annual ice show, attract visitors and inspire them to transform a jacuzzi tub into a personal-size skating rink.
