The Glendale Civic has been the home of the Glendale Toy Show, which many of our members regularly attend. Hotels, motels and restaurants are only a short drive away and the Burbank airport is just 10 miles distance.

Or you can find free parking on nearby residential streets or metered parking for 75 cents an hour in a public parking lot south of Mountain Street.
