allendale park

another installment of pasadena's illustrious parks. this one is located right next to the allendale branch of the public library, as well as being located right across the road from blair high school. it gains big bonus points from me for including a baseball diamond, which of course i chose to feature in today's blog post.

from the city website:

"Allendale Park is located at 1130 South Marengo Avenue across from Blair High School and adjacent to Allendale Elementary. Hours of operation are from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm. The size of the park is 2.9 acres. Major park attractions include: one softball diamond with lights and bleachers (300 capacities); one lighted multi-purpose field suitable for youth soccer; and one tennis court with lights. Additional facilities include: 5 picnic tables; benches; parking lot; open grass area with trees; outfield use for soccer; playground equipment; restrooms; drinking fountains; and branch library."

I'm very much enjoying this parks series, especially all the mosaic signs. The tiles in the Allendale Park signs are awesome! The animals in the bottom photo are very cool. Do you know anything about who did the mosaic signs? I assume it was a public art project -- maybe involving kids? I don't have kids but I'd love to hang out in any of these parks.

Yep, it was a public art project, but I don't know much more than that. I think it was done at the Armory Center for the Arts, but I may need to do some more investigating to find out more.

I love Allendale Park! It's one of our parks where a branch library is located (La Pintoresca is the other).
