Arlington Garden, is a public garden reclaimed by the vision, determination, and work of Betty and Charles McKenney. Once an abandoned patch of weeds, Arlington Garden is now a collection of alfresco ‘rooms’ featuring Southern California’s distinct climate zones and plants; from the Olive Tree alle to desert xeriscape borders, from Live Oak havens and California Native Wildflowers to rush-filled swales that soak in storm water runoff, and an orchard of Orange trees. Bordered by Pasadena Avenue and Arlington Drive, Arlington Garden is a bucolic buffer within the urban landscape. Arlington Garden is free, open sunrise through sunset, each day of the year.
