  Orange Grove Median Landscape Project SPB re-landscaped over 6000 sq. ft. of medians on Orange Grove Avenue between Columbia and Grevalia Streets. The landscape was designed by SPB board member Anita Williams and offers a beautiful array of colors and textures using drought-tolerant plants. The landscape was installed in March 2016 with the help of TruGreen Landscape Contractors.

Orange Grove Park Mural  Last fall we set our sights on a blighted wall at the tennis courts of Orange Grove Park. SPB teamed up with the City Public Works department and the South Pasadena Arts Council to transform the spot into something visually cheerful and charming. Public Works replaced the old wall and SPARC member and local artist, Kelly Conte, led a group of SPHS student artists to create and paint the mural.  The mural depicts three swimmers at the  "Plunge", the old South Pasadena swimming pool which was located at the site of the tennis courts many years ago. Once the painting is completed the surface will be covered in an anti-graffiti protective sealant. Many thanks to all to helped make this project successful.

City of South Pasadena River Rock Sign On February 20th and 21st SPB members worked cleaning up the trail along the Arroyo Seco and the "City of South Pasadena" hillside rock sign adjacent to the 110 freeway. Volunteers cleared out dead brush, weeds and of course lots of trash. After weeding the hillside, California poppy seeds were scattered and hopefully we will be rewarded with a hillside of orange blooms after the coming rains. The trail is used by runners, horseback riders, and dog walkers. The clean up makes the area look safer and friendlier for more people to use.  More work will be tackled in the coming months. Contact us via our contact page on this site to find sign up for our next clean up.
