“Not an attraction”

City of Pasadena City Hall
Ranked #6 of 53 things to do in Pasadena
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 June 2018

The City Hall is a beautiful building but not an attraction. There is nowhere to eat or shop nearby and you will need to walk a few blocks downtown to get to anything, its strictly administrative building. Good for an instagram photo, huh?

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.

City Hall of Pasadena is the view used for the external image of the city Hall for the old Parks and Recreation Series. If you're in Pasadena, its worth walking though...taking pictures! We always see Quinceanera or bridal photos being taken in the Archway and Rose Garden. During the Christmas holidays, there's a tree and decorations along with seasonal lighting that is beautiful. While a good architectural view during the day, night (especially during holidays) is an especially good view. It is a city hall, so offices are active, this is more for the external design and imagery of the building and the rose garden. Mack and Jackie Robinson's busts are across the traffic circle to the West of City Hall as well.
