|Monrovia's Old Town is the heart of the community. Revitalized from the once dilapitated state it found itself in the 1970s, today it has become a regional attraction and local necessity for those who live, work and play in Monrovia.
Sense of Place
It's where Monrovia began. It's where Monrovia gathers today for civic events, for parades and for the Family Festival street fair and farmer's market...
Sense of Community
Every Friday night, from March through to Christmas, thousands of residents and visitors alike mingle at the largest street fair of its kind in the state, with craft and food booths, kiddie rides, a certified farmer's market, live music and more.
Live, Work and Play
Old Town is where the entire region comes for shopping, dining and entertainment in a unique atmosphere.
Myrtle Avenue's shops and restaurants, it's 12-screen movie palace and its small-town ambiance, combined with plenty of free parking, draw shoppers and diners alike. But small businesses thrive above the shops as well, and people live in condos and flats within Old Town, making it a living community, a safe and people-friendly neighborhood.
Library Park, with its new 28,000-square-foot Public Library, band shell, playground, fountain, shaded walkways, specimen trees and veterans memorials, is a quiet "town square" at the core of this thriving district.
