Pasadena Community Tour: Crown of the Valley
// By Jacqueline Brennan
During the LA Inside & Out Pasadena tour, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the 132-year-old Los Angeles suburb, located near the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains, approximately 11 miles northeast of downtown LA.
You’ll travel to several historic locations to take a glimpse into the past, and learn about Pasadena’s social history—with a focus on the local African-American community. You’ll also learn about the work of local foundations, such as the Tournament of Roses Foundation, Pasadena Education Foundation, and Flintridge Foundation, and how they support the efforts of local changemakers. Additionally, you’ll hear firsthand accounts from longtime residents of the community and local nonprofit partners about residential patterns, demographic changes, and political movements in Pasadena.
LA Inside & Out tours are half-day immersion experiences where you’ll actively participate in a journey into dynamic LA neighborhoods where real changework is happening, and be inspired by what you learn to create real change in your community, too.
