The Rose Bowl FurMeet takes place monthly. This is a potluck style meet, so bring your favorite dish to share.

Directions: The Rose Bowl area is accessible off the 134 & 210 Freeway. You will look for the Aquatic Center & it’s parking lot, with five flag poles in front. The park/picnic area is behind the AC and Tennis courts.

If you are coming from the North (Ventura County or Simi Valley):  I would avoid the 101 since it’s the busiest fwy, unless you happen to beat traffic early. Take the 118 E, to the 210 E. It’s a longer drive, but less busy than the 101. Once you are on the 210 E, Exit off of Mountain and go down Seco St. Keep going, till you reach the Rose Bowl area. Do not go right towards the stadium. Go left towards the park and where the aquatic center is. Park In Lot I, or near it. If you are coming from Santa Clarita take the 5 S. to the 210 E, and La Canada, just take 210 E etc. Same directions listed above.

If you are coming from Orange County, San Diego, Fullerton, Anaheim, Garden Grove: You will want to take the 5 north, then the 2 which is the Glendale Fwy. Then hit the 134 E. Exit Orange Grove Blvd, and make a left. At the next light ahead, make another left on Holly Street. Continue onward, keep left, then make a left on Arroyo Drive. Go down till you come across a stop sign. Go right on that says Rose Bowl. Park in Lot I.
