Brookside Park

Pasadena sits on an alluvial fan, deposited by stream systems which eroded the bedrock of the San Gabriel Mountains to the north. The primary stream was carved out of a great gorge called the Arroyo Seco.

In 1922 the world-famous Rose Bowl was completed in an area of the Arroyo Seco designated as Brookside Park. Covering 61.1 acres, Brookside is Pasadena's largest park. Adjacent to the Rose Bowl is Brookside Golf Course with its two 18-hole championship courses. The Rose Bowl Aquatics Center houses two 50-meter pools, and is the host facility for premier local, national, and international swimming, diving, and water polo events. Lessons for the public are offered.

In addition, Brookside Park contains picnic accommodations, five lighted tennis courts, four badminton courts, two handball courts, two lighted softball diamonds, six lighted horseshoe courts, archery, and lawn bowling facilities. The park's regulation baseball diamond, the Jackie Robinson Stadium, has grandstand seating for 4,200 people, team rooms, showers and lockers.
