Nice park. Ground is all flat with a small park area. Might be difficult to find a spot to park but that depends on the time of day. Nice place to sit and watch the kids.

Central park is located immediately south of the old Pasadena store shopping district. Park is massive spanning a very large full square block. There is now a new kids playground set up in one of the corners of the park.

A city block park to walk around or through, relax or take the kids to play in. It is surrounded by Central Park restaurant (great food), Luggage Room (great pizza) and more. Two blocks down from Colorado Blvd in Old Pasadena.

Central Park is surrounded by some of the best eateries in Pasadena: Central Park Restaurant on the west side and La Grande Orange on the east side, plus Houston's nearby on Arroyo Parkway. It has become our favorite local dining destination.

This park, with its beautiful 100+ year old trees, would be a great place to spend an afternoon if it wasn't for the homeless. They camp out on the grass, sleep, beg, and fight with one another. I drive by this park often and I...More

It's a park. Lots and lots of homeless folks and dog walkers from the Humane Society across the street.

This is a nice park with a wonderful playground for kids. Nice area to stroll through. There is a large homeless population that uses this park to hang out day and night but I've never had any problems with them, they keep to themselves.

I was excited to visit this place but didn't spend more than 5 minutes there as there were many homeless, odd people just camping there. The park is empty and not popular despite its location and beauty (that you better admire from a distance). Very...More
