We work together with the City of Pasadena to plant trees in vacant parkway sites, upgrade the size of planted trees, respond to resident requests for a few trees or coordinate major projects for hundreds of trees.
The outstanding results of our efforts in landscape plantings at public buildings, parks and library in Pasadena.
Many residents of Pasadena take great pride in the beauty that their gardens and homes make in their neighborhood. We encourage recognition for the extra effort these residents make to single family homes by awarding numerous Golden Arrow Awards every year.
Annually we honor commercial, institutional and multi-family projects for exceptional beautification in their structures or landscape.
Every Wednesday we work to help make Pasadena Beautiful.

An Update from PBF

To the friends of Pasadena Beautiful Foundation,

Our board of directors and advisory board join me in wishing all of you good health and safety during this unusual and stressful period of the global pandemic. Like all of us, we’re staying home and trying to make the best of what we can given the circumstances.

The result of our quarantine is that we won’t be as active uploading our pictures to the website as often as we usually do. But we are still participating in the weekly “Wednesday Weeders” from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. We’re wearing masks and staying appropriately apart, and still having fun as we work in Pasadena’s parks. Feel free to join us.

I am hopeful that we will get back to a more normal existence in the not too distant future. I don’t know about you, but I am gratified by the outpouring of kindness that I can detect from my fellow Pasadena citizens. We’re all in this together and I think this is felt universally by our wonderful community.

In solidarity,

Brad Hanson
Pasadena Beautiful President

Our Latest Project: Hill Avenue Library Landscaping Project

Attachment-2  Attachment-1  Attachment-3

From the Library: I’m pleased to let you know that the patio garden is very popular at Hill Ave Branch Library. We are pleased to be able to offer this space for people who want to read outside, eat lunch or play after crafts and programs, including story time. We have had one large program outside – an animal show, and we plan to have more programs soon. That space accommodates many more people than we can fit into any space inside. So, I want to thank you once again for helping to make this happen. Please pass my thanks along to all Pasadena Beautiful participants.
