The hyperlocal approach at its best: South Pasadena's Patch has published a mini-guide to the parks in their small city. There are six official community parks in South Pas (Garfield Park, Orange Grove Park, Arroyo Seco Park, Eddie Park, War Memorial Park, and Library Park), each offering history buffs, shade-seekers, playground climbers, and solitary amblers something different. For locals and picnickers with a penchant for patches of grass south of Pas, this is an excellent guide to help explore one of LA County's more charming small cities. Bonus: The author includes a video tour of the parks.
