ADA

Accessible Parking

Entrance to lots with accessible parking requires a valid disabled parking placard or “access” license plate. To assist patrons in reaching the accessible lots, we suggest that the accessibility placards be hung from the rear view mirror or placed on the driver’s side of the dash board. Our traffic officers are trained to look for the placards and will assist the patrons to the accessible lots. Upon request, patrons must also show the serial numbered registration card issued to the individual that has been legally assigned an accessible parking placard or license plate. Please refer to the map for parking lot locations. Please also be aware that accessible parking is provided on a first-come, first-served basis, and accessible parking is not guaranteed once the spaces are full.

Parking Lot B contains 150 accessible parking spaces. Enter Lot B from the south or east on Arroyo Blvd., or from the west off of Rosemont Ave.

Parking Lot D contains 76 accessible parking spaces. Enter Lot D from the west off of Rosemont Ave.

Parking Lot F contains 100 accessible parking spaces. Access Lot F from the south on Arroyo Blvd. off of Seco St., or from the north on Arroyo Blvd. off of Rosemont Ave. (Lot F is unavailable for parking during the monthly Flea Market. )

Drop-off & Pick-up Policy at the Rose Bowl Stadium

The drop off and pick up policy (including patrons with disabilities (ADA) at the Rose Bowl stadium fluctuates based on the crowd size at the stadium/Arroyo Seco and whether a spectator shuttle system is provided to patrons. There are displacement events wherein all activities in the Arroyo Seco (including Kidspace, Rose Bowl Aquatic Center; Brookside Park and Brookside Golf Course) are suspended. Generally speaking any event in the Arroyo Seco with a crowd estimate over 20,000 people is considered a “Displacement Event.” For displacement events a spectator shuttle is usually provided, all shuttle buses are wheel chair accessible with either a wheel chair lift or a wheel chair ramp. Most often the spectator shuttle is free of charge; however, on occasion there may a fee charged to ride the shuttle buses. Generally, the Parsons Engineering Parking Lot in Old Pasadena is the designated location for the shuttle bus park and ride. The designated drop off for patrons that will ride the shuttle buses is on Holly Street between Fair Oaks and Raymond. Patrons are dropped off on Holly Street at Fair Oaks and make there way to Holly and Pasadena Ave to where the buses load, depart from and return to when taking passengers to the Rose Bowl.

For the non-displacement events at the Rose Bowl, generally events with crowd estimates of less than 20,000, there is a designated drop off in the Arroyo Seco. Depending on the event the designated drop off and pick up location fluctuates and is designated to be at the closest most convenient location for the patrons attending the event.
