Jackie Robinson Park

Located on Reid Avenue between Chauncey and Marion Streets, this park honors Jackie Robinson (1919-1972), the first African-American Major League Baseball player. Robinson was born in Cairo, Georgia, and raised in Pasadena, California. Robinson’s athletic prowess became evident at the University of California, Los Angeles, where he became the first student to letter in four sports: baseball, basketball, football, and track. Robinson played professional football for the Los Angeles Bulldogs before serving in the army during World War II.
