Surrounding La Casita are drought-tolerant demonstration gardens nestled amongst oaks in the shadow of Colorado Street Bridge, making this rustic location the perfect setting for events.

    La Casita del Arroyo is located in the Lower Arroyo within the Arroyo Seco Natural Park, south of the Colorado Street Bridge.

    The main entrance to the Lower Arroyo is located off South Arroyo Blvd.
