Adventure Description

For an outdoor respite in downtown Pasadena, visit Central Park to sprawl out on green grass in the sunshine. This is a popular destination for locals and visitors alike. Located just a few blocks from Colorado Boulevard, it is easy walking distance from Old Pasadena, and it's also a simple commute from other parts of town given its proximity to Interstate 210 and the Metro Rail. The park features open space, shade trees, flower gardens, horseshoe pits, lawn bowling courts, croquet field, an ADA-accessible playground, and public restrooms.

The park is surprisingly clean and well kept considering the number of people who use it every day. At just over 9 acres in area, however, you can still find space all to yourself for a game, picnic, yoga session, or just a quiet place to read. You may encounter homeless-looking people loafing around the park, but the city makes efforts to keep this under control, and children can play safely during daylight hours.

Stop by Central Park to round out a day spent in downtown Pasadena. It makes a rewarding addition to a tour of all the nearby shops, restaurants, and historical buildings.
