Monrovia is an All-America City!
In 1995-1996, Monrovia was recognized as an All-America City by the National Civic League.
Since 1949, this award has been given to ten communities each year in recognition of their outstanding civic accomplishments.
To win, communities must demonstrate innovation, impact, inclusiveness, civic engagement, and cross-sector collaboration to address pressing local challenges.
Old Town Monrovia is the 2016 and 2017 San Gabriel Valley’s Reader’s Choice Award for Favorite City/Downtown!
Old Town is the heart of Monrovia - it offers a sense of place for residents and businesses. Whether it's our newly renovated Library, weekly Family Festival, or exciting community events, there is a constant flow of visitors to Myrtle Avenue. Opportunities abound for developers and businesses that want to become a part of our community.
Monrovia is celebrating its 30th year as a Tree City USA!
Everywhere you look in Monrovia, the landscape is filled with mature trees adding to the beauty and health of Monrovia. We are recognized as a California Tree City.
Oak Trees have a special place in our community, officially protected in our Municipal Code.
We hold an Annual Arbor Day Ceremony the last Friday in April to celebrate the benefits of trees in our community and plant new trees. This event is hosted by our youth, led by the Monrovia Teen Advisory Board and Monrovia Youth Commission.
Our Parks crew regularly trims our trees to keep them healthy and safe.
