Memorial Park is a below-grade light rail station in the Los Angeles County Metro Rail system. It is located at Holly Street and Arroyo Parkway in Pasadena, California. The station is served by the Gold Line.[1]

Situated on the northern edge of Old Town Pasadena, Memorial Park Station is located in a trench beneath the Holly Street Village Apartments, which were constructed in 1994 in anticipation of a light rail station at this site. This station features station art called The First Artists in Southern California: A Short Story, created by artist John Valadez.

It is one of the Gold Line stations near the Rose Parade route on Colorado Boulevard and is heavily used by people coming to see the parade and to take the shuttle to the UCLA football games and the Rose Bowl Game at the Rose Bowl stadium.[2] During the 2028 Summer Olympics, the station will serve spectators traveling to and from the Rose Bowl.
