Old Towne & Catlin Court Districts

Discover Historic Downtown Glendale which has been named as one of the country’s ten best places for shopping and has received national accolades for dining. 

Historic Downtown Glendale's Entertainment District is actually two distinct neighborhoods!

Old Towne's brick-trimmed sidewalks and glowing gaslights lead the way to the famous eateries, antique shops and specialty stores.

Historic Catlin Court features a wonderful collection of unique boutiques and one-of-a-kind eateries.  Located in mid-century bungalows, the area is surrounded by picket fences and mature shade trees. 

The pedestrian friendly area spans 10 square blocks. Free covered parking is available at the Palmaire Parking Structure located at 5835 W. Palmaire Ave.
