Address & Neighborhood Map
The Storrier Stearns Japanese Garden is located in Pasadena, approximately eight miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles.
The garden entrance is at 270 Arlington Drive, between South Orange Grove Boulevard and South Pasadena Avenue.
We look forward to seeing you at the garden. We are located in a residential neighborhood so please do not park on Arlington Drive or any of the surrounding residential streets. It is our efforts to be a good neighbor that allow us to operate in a residential zone.
There is some parking on-site in our two driveways. Park in a single file next to the property line and please do not block the area at the end of each driveway where cars turn around to exit.
On Sundays, most convenient is our parking lot on Madeline Drive that we share with a nearby school. From there it is just a short walk on the sidewalk around the block to the garden. The lot opens at 9:30am. (click here for map).
The Storrier Stearns Japanese Garden is open on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and every Sunday. Hours are 10am to 4pm. (see Calendar of Events Page). It can also be reserved for private invitation-only events.
