grant park

the fourth installment of the pasadena park series. featuring of course, another new park, and another new mosaic tile sign! grant park was a park that i had never visited before taking on this project. meredith and i really liked the look of the giant red spiderweb thing.

from the city website:

"Grant Park is located at 232 South Michigan Avenue. Hours of operation are from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm. The size of the park is 2.5 acres. This neighborhood park is ideally situated for use by downtown residents. Park facilities include two lighted tennis courts; half-basketball courts; softball diamond; three horseshoe pits; open grass area with several trees; restrooms; drinking fountains; picnic tables with canopies; barbecue pits; and a large playground area for children."

I liked the Grant Park picture because people were actually using the park.

Great point - a lot of the parks I photographed had few people. But I was actually surprised at how many were actually in use.

Just wait until your little one is born! This is one of our sons (ages 1 and 3) parks. And if you get hungry, Eddie's Market is right across the street for a sandwich.
