Add to that, South Pasadena has also gained a reputation for being a little city that does big things. South Pasadena is at it again and in conjunction with the American Green Zone Alliance (AGZA) held a special ceremony Thursday at Garfield Park (Mission Street at Park Avenue) to celebrate the momentous accomplishment of having become the first municipal park in the country maintained one hundred percent gas and emissions free.“This is a huge accomplishment for our city and our residents. Visitors to Garfield Park will reap the benefits of not having to breathe all of the pollutants spewing from gas-powered lawn equipment,” said City Councilmember Michael Cacciotti.Only battery-electric lawn equipment and hand tools are used at Garfield Park, which is located in a residential neighborhood.Garfield Park is home to many special events including concerts in the park and is enjoyed daily by many families and their pets.“After working for more than two years, it’s great that this day is finally here. I want to thank my fellow councilmembers and look forward to the day when all of our city facilities are declared a green zone,” added Cacciotti, who also serves on the Governing Board of the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD).
