Who knew brown-bagging it could be a cultural event? Or so beautiful & peaceful? Every Tuesday the Gamble House, the arts and crafts landmark designed by Charles and Henry Greene allows visitors to picnic on the rear terrace of this 1908 treasure from 11:30-1pm. Bring your lunch and if you finish early, enjoy a 20 minute tour of the house. Details below.
From the website:“Whether you work, live or are visiting Pasadena, whether you are a family, work, or tour group, or passer-by, whether it is winter or summer, you can re-design your Tuesday lunch break and visit The Gamble House. The Gamble House and garden on Westmoreland Place are sheltered from traffic congestion with the San Gabriel Mountains as a backdrop. Street parking is available and it’s an enjoyable place to relax away from pressures and commitments while experiencing one of the city’s architectural treasures.”
Every Tuesday, we provide seating on the rear lawn and terrace from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and visitors bring their own lunch ~ Free
Two 20-minute docent-led short tours will be given at 12:15 p.m. and at 12:45 pm ~ Admission is $5.
