Altadena's Miniature Golf Course

If you recall back 50 years, when the purple and white building on Lake Ave just south of Amy’s restaurant was The Venetian, you might remember the miniature golf garden that was built on the property in the 1920s.  The recreational attraction closed during the depression but the mini buildings dotting the little course were still there. In fact, a few of them remain to this day including the pint sized church featured in the photo below.  

Sidewalks still wind through the course ruins and remnants of a little water hazard remain.
The Altadena Golf Garden
piped in music over loud speakers.
More recently the location has served as a church.  The church sold the property a few months ago. Plans to raze the building (and the golf course) to build medical offices is on hold due to parking issues.
