The South Pas Nature Park (officially The South Pasadena Arroyo Seco Woodland and Wildlife Park) is a small parcel along the Arroyo Seco graced with mature coast live oaks, southern walnuts and western sycamores. Planted with sage, buckwheat and other native coastal sage scrub plants the park provides an inviting environment for birds, lizards, squirrels and numerous other critters. Locals too enjoy walking, jogging and horseback riding through the park.

Enjoy the following slideshow with images of the nature park from the 1930s to date. View its transformation from a neglected and degraded site to coastal sage scrub and oak/walnut/sycamore woodland. Better yet, visit the park at the 100 block of Pasadena Avenue in South Pasadena.

Friends of the Nature Park

In 2006 the Friends of the Nature Park was created as a community stewardship group for the park. Join us on Saturdays (usually the third Saturday of the month – with no cleanups in July, August and December – at the South Pas Nature Park on Pasadena Ave. to plant, remove weeds and litter, build paths, and enjoy the park. Come for the whole time, for an hour, or just stop by to say hello!

Learn more about the history of the park and the community’s involvement in its creation and care in the articles:

Check the Facebook page, Friends of the So Pas Nature Park for pictures and information on park cleanups and events.
