Statement of Significance (as of designation - February 27, 1987):
Since 1922, this has been the site of the earliest and most-renowned post-season college football "bowl" games. Held every New Years Day since 1916, the Rose Bowl also commemorates the civic work of the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association, the sponsor of the annual flower festival, parade, and bowl game. Additionally, this was one of the venues of the 1932 and 1984 Olympics.
