Altadena Heritage is an activist organization; we not only promote preservation, we also advocate for a more beautiful community.
Old Marengo Park
We were instrumental in sponsoring Old Marengo Park, reviving a patch of waste ground left for 40 years after Woodbury Road was realigned.
The dirt lot that became Old Maregro Park. Volunteers transform the space during one of many workdays.
We teamed with Arroyo & Foothills Conservancy to write grants, design, and coordinate with the County, and in the end created a pocket park planted with native oaks and other California plants, bringing a bit of the foothills down to the southern border of Altadena.
Golden Poppy Awards
Every year our Golden Poppy awards honor those who have created beautiful gardens. Homeowners are presented with a bronze plaque to display in their front yard for two years.
