Central District

The Central District is the City’s urban core and primary civic, business, financial, retail, entertainment and cultural center with direct access to the Del Mar, Memorial Park, and Lake Metro Gold Line stations. The area covers a number of unique neighborhoods in the City, including Old Pasadena, the Civic Center, the Pasadena Playhouse, and South Lake. The General Plan envisions building upon the Central District’s existing strength as a walkable, vibrant downtown; fostering a varied mix of uses, including retail, restaurants, and entertainment, higher density residential, office, and open spaces that are connected by multiple modes of transportation.
