It is a beautiful building with a nice fountain in the courtyard. You can take some great pictures here. Mack and Jackie Robinson's busts are located here also. A must see on your historic walking tour of Pasadena.

Pasadena City Hall is more than just the local government seat; it's a Pasadena landmark. Be sure to see it at night from Holly Street, and if you are in town, don't miss the Christmas tree lighting ceremony.

Beautiful area for an afternoon stroll. Enjoy the gardens and grounds. Lots of photo opportunities, and you’re likely to come across professional photography sessions any afternoon.

Park in the free parking structure. Walk though and see the old stuff. Dont buy in highly overpriced stores. Dont go in the restaurants. But may you find something nice.

This building is located behind the Westin Hotel and seems to draw us to it everytime we visit. The architecture is so fascinating and welcoming.

I like the symmetry of this building and the nice presence it has on an urban scale for the city of Pasadena. If you are into wedding/beauty shots, this is a fun place to go. Almost every time I visit, there are people dressed up...More

While you are touring Pasadena, go to Garfield Street and visit the City Hall. It is a true, restored example of beaux-arts style and is worth the stop.
