Where Do I Park in Old Pasadena

There’s ample parking in various parking structures and of course, on surface streets.  Just remember if you park on the street, read the signs carefully, since the streets are patrolled regularly and tickets are given out freely.  Parking in “Park & Walk” garages is FREE for the first 90 minutes.  There are several locations:
  • De Lacey lot on De Lacey between Green Street (Green St is one way heading East – so be careful!) and Colorado Blvd.
