The Pasadena Civic Center District is the civic center of and a historic district in Pasadena, California. The district is roughly bounded by Walnut and Green Streets and Raymond and Euclid Avenues. Construction on the buildings in the district was funded with a $3.5 million bond issuance in 1923. The plan was created by the Chicago firm of Bennett, Parsons and Frost. The elaborate designs of the buildings in the district were inspired by the City Beautiful movement of the 1920s.
The Pasadena Post Office, Turner and Stevens Company Building, YMCA, and YWCA, the last of which was designed by Julia Morgan, were part of the district prior to the 1920s. After the Civic Center was formally planned, additional buildings were constructed in the area. These buildings include the American Legion Hall, the First Baptist Church, the Southern California Gas Company building, the Hall of Justice, the County Courts, All Saints Baptist Church, and the Maryland Hotel Apartments. Memorial Park, the site of Pasadena's first public library, is also part of the district.
