Brookside Park Pasadena
Where are we going today?
Who is ready for that old fashioned park fun in Pasadena? Brookside Park is over 60 acres of great park space, perfect for just spending the day out with the family, getting active and enjoying the sun!
Brookside Park is the largest fully maintained park in Pasadena, and is perfect for active kids. For those families who love playing some sports, you can enjoy some baseball in the regulation diamond, and softball diamonds too. There are also fields with lighting for soccer and flag football.
It's aces all around at the 5 tennis courts too!
For that fun playtime, Brookside Park also has fun playground equipment for those younger kids to crawl, climb, spin and slide until their heart's content, and don't forget those running shoes because there is a fitness trail perfect for walking or jogging.
Those kids will be heading home exhausted after their time at Brookside Park with all this family fun!
Of course, Brookside Park is still a park, which means there is plenty of open space for the kids to run around too. Why not take a picnic, a ball, a frisbee, even a kite, and just enjoy this great park space.
Don't forget your hats though - that California sun is almost TOO good!

My kids love the pirate ship playground. I have fun dodging the make believe canon balls.
The pirate ship can be hard to find if you have never been there. It is located right behind the aquatic center.
Take them here and this will be one of your kid's favorite childhood memories.
