Altadena Community Amenities

"Altadena" roughly translates to "above Pasadena," which refers to Altadena's higher elevation. North Avenue slowly rises through the middle of Altadena before it stops at the base of the San Gabriel mountains. The community is north and west of I-210, and Pasadena is just to its south. In fact, Pasadena has made several attempts over many years to annex Altadena, but homeowners in the unincorporated community have repeatedly rebuffed full-scale annexation, preferring to remain unincorporated and under the jurisdiction of the Los Angeles County government for now. Altadena has more than 40,000 residents.

For nearly 100 years, a stretch of Santa Rosa Avenue in Altadena has been known as Christmas Tree Lane. Each year, a volunteer community association lights the lane with holiday lights, which draws thousands of visitors. The association says the event is the oldest large-scale Christmas lighting in the country. Christmas Tree Lane is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Altadena has a small business district, but the community is primarily residential. Paseo Colorado, a huge retail, restaurant, and theater district, is nearby in Pasadena. The Rose Bowl, Caltech, Brookside Golf and Country Club, and the Kidspace Children's Museum are all nearby. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory is also just on the other side of Hahamonga Watershed Park from Altadena.
