The three-acre lot where this garden is located remained vacant for years until a City council member asked a couple of residents to determine the best way to use the space. The idea was born to create a garden that could be a restful place within our urban setting, one which flora would be climate appropriate, and therefore, utilize water wisely.
Although there are many parks and green spaces in Pasadena, the Arlington Garden is different because it is exactly that, a garden. There is no children’s play equipment here, nor areas to practice sports. Instead, there are chairs and tables where you can sit down to enjoy the flowers (native to our area), the cacti, the birds and animals that the greenery attracts, and most unusual in the middle of a city, a bit of quiet.
Bring a book, take a picture, and treat yourself to a peaceful stroll at the Arlington Garden. It is open every day of the year from dawn to dusk and there is no entrance fee. It is located on the corner of Arlington Drive and Pasadena Avenue. You and your family will love it here! For more information visit www.ArlingtonGardeninPasadena.org
Tons of happy people laughing, taking pictures, painting and just enjoying the beautiful weather and atmosphere. An awesome day that was relaxing as it was enjoyable. I think we found our new Sunday afternoon ritual! — Jeremy B, Los Angeles
