Entrance to the Huntington Gardens

Pasadena - A city of about 140,000 in the San Gabriel Valley, about ten miles north-east of downtown Los Angeles and only recently engulfed by that urban agglomeration, Pasadena is characterized by a mild climate, much excellent residential and institutional architecture, an urban forest visible from space, a strong sense of community, and a wide range of cultural, educational and other institutions and organizations.

The Westside - The Westside includes Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Culver City, the beach towns of Venice and Santa Monica, the coastal bluffs of Pacific Palisades, the harbor at Marina Del Rey, and renowned institutions like UCLA and the Getty Museums. Many Westside gardens have views of the ocean, mountains and the city, especially from high points in the hills and mountains. With cool ocean breezes, salt air and fog, Westside gardens and designed landscapes often feature plant palettes different from those seen elsewhere in the region. The varied native plant communities (actual or historical) include coastal sage scrub, coastal prairie, coastal chaparral, coastal oak woodland and various wetland types, among others.
