Pasadena’s Lower Arroyo Nature Park runs from the area immediately south of the Colorado Street Bridge to the border of South Pasadena. It spans about 150 acres and contains a fly-casting pond and archery range. Rubble walls retain the slopes and help define paths. It’s perfect for nature lovers and a great spot to walk your dog. Joggers, hikers and walkers alike enjoy the natural, rustic canyon setting shaded by oaks, sycamores, maples and countless white alders. Parking in the lot of Pasadena’s Lower Arroyo Nature Park, I like to go north and walk under the magnificent Colorado Street Bridge. The scenery is gorgeous and the trail crisscrosses a pretty seasonal stream that pools in spots making a nice place for your dog to “take a dip”. This is a fairly mild jaunt and takes about an hour. You can also head south towards South Pasadena. Here the stream-bed is contained in a concrete channel however the surrounding area is a gorgeous deep canyon. This path takes you under several bridges and by the site of the original Busch Gardens (1905–1937). 

DIRECTIONS

CAR: Exit the 134 Freeway at Orange Grove Boulevard in Pasadena and go south on Orange Grove. Turn right onto California Boulevard and right again onto Arroyo Boulevard. The park entrance is on the left, just before Norwood Drive. Parking lot is at the bottom of the hill, on the left.

Alternately, take the 110 Freeway north until its end and continue north on Arroyo Seco Parkway. Turn left onto California Boulevard. When California ends, turn right onto Arroyo Boulevard and look for the park entrance on the left, just before Norwood Drive.

BIKE: There is no bike path along the Arroyo Seco, but Arroyo Boulevard is a designated bike route and a pleasant ride. There is easy bike access from the Metro Gold Line Del Mar Station; follow transit directions below,

TRANSIT: It's a bit of a walk (1.4 miles), but mainly through old Pasadena neighborhoods with big, beautiful houses. Take the Metro Gold Line to the Del Mar Station in Pasadena. Turn right (west) onto Del Mar Boulevard, cross and turn left onto Orange Grove Boulevard. Turn right on Arbor Street, left onto Arroyo Boulevard, and look for the park entry on your right across from Norwood Drive. Walk down the entry road to the bottom of the hill.
