LOCALISM FEATURED: Pasadena California: Prospect Park Historical and Neighborhood Information

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Pasadena Views Real Estate Team, Inc. BRE# 000872112


Prospect Park Pasadena Map

Prospect Park is a tiny neighborhood just North of the 134 Freeway and West of 210 - where the two freeways meet and is off of Orange Grove and Prospect Blvd.  This area was designated as a housing development in 1906 and had Sylvanus Marston clinker-brick portals on Orange Grove at Prospect Boulevard.  Beautiful and mature camphor trees create a shady arch over the wide boulevard as you enter from Orange Grove.  This neighborhood showcases a collection of Greene & Greene houses, the Gamble House and Frank Lloyd Wright's La Miniatura.
