The city of Pasadena’s Lower Arroyo Seco Nature Park features an innovative wetlands restoration project. Water from the concrete Arroyo Seco channel is diverted into a series of parallel side streams, which are now lushly vegetated and provide excellent bird habitat. This walk also includes a secluded, unpaved stretch of the Arroyo below the historic Colorado Blvd. Bridge and the 134 Freeway. Warning: This park has poison oak. Stay on trails and avoid it.
