Known as "South Pas" - We're The City of Trees

Visit our historic main street, Mission Street-home to an eclectic mix of merchants. And Fair Oaks Ave. is part of the original Route 66. Here you'll find a nostalgic soda fountain right alongside trendy cafés, shops and stops. Several times each year the business district hosts festivals, like the Cruz' for Roases Car show and the Eclectic Music Festival & Art Walk. On Independence Day, it's pancakes, fireworks and a parade!

Specialty retailers and top-notch professionals know, South Pas fills a unique need: high quality spaces in small places. From converted bungalows to purpose-built contemporary structures, South Pas will suit you.


Great Schools Mean Business Here

The South Pasadena Unified School District schools' are repeatedly ranked among the best in California. Great schools attract great people who like to live, work and play in their own back yard. In 2008 we built a State-of-the-art track and field at the High School. And the Middle School is undergoing a major expansion plan, scheduled to open in Fall 2011.

A Natural Setting

Canopies of century-old trees line our streets. From Craftsman-style bungalows to modern hilltop mansions to downtown lofts, in SouthPas we're famous for our arbors and our architecture - including the first transit housing on the Metro Gold Line, Mission Meridian Village.

Par 3 for the Course

Arroyo_Seco_Golf_CourseArroyo Seco Golf Course A treasure of SouthPas is the Arroyo Seco Golf Course, offering affordable golf to the Los Angeles area for more than 50 years. The course consists of 18 holes of par 3 golf, a lighted driving range, putting green, minature golf, restaurant and pro shop facilities. The average round takes just over 2-1/2 hours to play. Although the prices are low the quality is not sacrificed. Arroyo Seco boasts some of the finest greens in the area all year long.
