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.
  • Schoolhouse lot on Green Street between Fair Oaks and Raymond
  • Marriott Lot on Raymond, just North of Holly.

You will also find parking valet stands throughout.  There are 15 different Unified Parking locations throughout Old Pasadena.  You can drop your car in one location and ask to have your car waiting at a different stand.  🙂
