Pasadena’s Historic Jewel.
Your Premier Event Venue.

Welcome to the Storrier Stearns Japanese Garden. Hidden in the heart of Pasadena, this historic jewel is also a premier event venue.
The garden offers numerous event possibilities, within a uniquely designed, two acre property. Originally part of a larger private estate, the garden retains its ambiance of secluded serenity.
