Alhambra


Alhambra
is a city in California located in the Western San Gabriel region, bordered by South Pasadena on the northwest, San Marino on the North, San Gabriel on the East, Monterey Hills and El Sereno on the West, Rosemead on the southeast, and Monterey Park on the South.


History

Alhambra is actually named after the famous writer Washington Irving’s book called Tales of the Alhambra. The city was founded in 1903, where it started developing throughout its early years all the way up till now, with establishments such as Alhambra High School, and the Alhambra Fire Department. Today, Alhambra is known for its eye-catching, historical craftsmanship of its homes, and for the people who immigrated to the city forming a unique melting pot. As a result of the Chinese immigrating to Alhambra in the 1980s, there has been a large wave of Chinese Businesses booming.  On Valley Boulevard there are Chinese shops, supermarkets, restaurants, banks, medical offices, and realtors.  Every year on this street there is a festival called The San Gabriel Valley Lunar New Year Parade where majority Asian Americans celebrate Chinese New Year, where they wash away any bad times they held in the past, and hope for good prosperity in the new coming year. Education-wise Alhambra is home to many colleges like Platt College, Everest College, and the Los Angeles Campus of Alliant International University


Activities & Attractions

Lunar New Year Parade – Celebrate Chinese New Year watching a festive parade that runs from Del Mar to Garfield Ave in the early Spring!

Alhambra Golf Course– This unique course is open to the public, where golfers of all different skill levels can put their practicing to the test! 630 South Almansor St., Alhambra, CA 91801 (626) 570-5059

Pyrenees Castle – This beautiful castle was created in 1926 by a man named Slyvester Dupuy.  Dupuy’s dream was to build a replica of the Chateau that he cherished while growing up in the South of France.  He came to America and became very wealthy in Agriculture, and when the moment came he began hiring architects, mostly artisans from Europe, to begin working on this masterpiece.  Although the whole castle was embellished with chandeliers, wooden floors, and paneling, water fountains, a marble center hall, tennis courts, and children playgrounds, the landscaping of the grounds was never finished because towards the end of Dupuy’s life he had lost a lot of wealth in oil investments.  After Dupuy’s death in 1936, his children sold the castle to a new owner.  Over all the years after the creator’s death, several different owners had possession over the castle.  Currently, the owner of the castle is Phil Spector.  Still looking as enchanted as when it was created, the Pyrenees castle will always be a mysterious, significant legend that seems to sway the minds of Alhambrans, and all its visitors.

Almansor Park

Almansor Park – This is a place where your family can have a picnic, relax, and enjoy the sunshine.  There are tennis courts, a gymnasium, baseball fields, a basketball court, and a jogging course located all in the park.
