Centrally located in the West San Gabriel Valley and less than three and one-half square miles in area, South Pasadena lies between the far larger City of Pasadena, of which it was once part, and the metropolis of Los Angeles.
About South Pasadena
South Pasadena is known for its tree-lined streets, historic California Craftsman-style homes, unique small businesses and its outstanding public schools. The City of South Pasadena has persevered for a hundred years to maintain its status as a distinct community with its own unique culture. Local merchants populate the business district, and the Mission West area, where the weekly Farmer’s Market is held, and is a part of the original U.S. Route 66. This small town atmosphere makes South Pasadena one of California’s most desirable locations.
