About South Pasadena

Located just 10 miles from downtown Los Angeles, South Pasadena is the ideal home base for those who enjoy a small-town atmosphere while working in the big city. Many residents make a daily commute, either by car or by taking the Metro from the city's Mission Gold Line Station.

South Pasadena has a small commercial core, the Mission District that runs along Mission Street, with shopping, dining, and entertainment options. The strip is home to independent boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants. Locals can find everything here, from curated vintage clothing emporiums to one of the last indie video stores in Los Angeles. There's a pharmacy and soda fountain dating back to 1915 and historic bars that are always packed with fun-loving locals. Dining options range from neighborhood joints serving delicious comfort food to more upscale restaurants offering innovative, chef-driven cuisine.

Downtown South Pasadena

Held on Thursday afternoons, the beloved South Pasadena Farmers Market is a highlight of the week. The downtown streets draw in residents and folks from nearby neighborhoods, all of whom come to sample fresh, locally sourced produce, browse a range of artisanal goods, and socialize over coffee and baked goods.

South Pasadena is a charming city, thanks not only to the well-preserved architecture but also the many parks and green spaces throughout the community. Running along Park Avenue, Garfield Park is one of the most popular places to spend time outdoors. There's a nice path here, as well as a playground and tennis courts. Arroyo Seco Park is another local favorite, featuring sports facilities, a nature park, and a popular dog park to the west. Local golf lovers flock to Arroyo Seco Golf Course, an 18-hole course with a driving range, putting green, and miniature golf course, as well as a restaurant and bar.

South Pasadena locals love coming together as a community, and there are events and festivals throughout the year. Arts Crawls are held throughout the year to celebrate music, food, and art. Throughout the summer months, concerts are held in Garfield Park, and locals can be found enjoying wine and picnics on blankets while listening to music under the stars.
