South Pas Parks – Ride & Picnic

MARCH 16th, 9am – 12pm

Join South Pas Active on Saturday, March 16th as they host a family bike ride, picnic, and day of learning in our community.

Starting at 9am, families will ride together from Garfield Park to The South Pasadena Nature Park,  where Friends of the Nature Park and South Pasadena Beautiful will provide education on native species and give children an opportunity to either plant in the park or take one home.

After a leisurely ride back to Garfield Park, enjoy a picnic of snacks and drinks at the Gazebos. The Hive will also be on hand hosting a “make + take” nature-themed craft table.

Afterward, stay and mingle with other parents as the children take over the playground.

To RSVP, please sign up here!
