Pasadena's city parks and recreation centers offer amenities to suit virtually any recreational activity. Strawberry Park, Burke Crenshaw Park, Southmore Park and Ben Briar Park have excellent fields for little league and adult league baseball. Fishermen will enjoy an afternoon at Crenshaw Park, where the pond is amply stocked with catfish, bass and, in the wintertime, rainbow trout. There also are numerous playgrounds, picnic areas, benches and open space throughout the city.
Pasadena Parks And Recreation Department, in partnership with Chevron Pasadena Refinery, The Economic Development Corporation, Urban Harvest, and Pasadena's Planning Department, are in the process of creating a Community Garden for the citizens of Pasadena!
