AT YOUR DOORSTEP

A Garden Oasis

Step outside your new home and into the Ambassador Gardens, a 34-acre turn-of-the-century “secret garden” that is home to giant cedars, native oaks, fragrant jasmine, thick grassy lawns, a reflecting pool, koi ponds and stone-lined streams. These gardens feel like your own private paradise! Formerly the Ambassador College campus, the grounds also delight with 100-year-old mansions and an auditorium used by the Pasadena Symphony. Stroll, meditate, or just breathe in the peace and beauty.
