Where do Alhambra residents "catch 'em all"?

Pokémon Go has captured the hearts of Alhambra residents. The augmented reality mobile game is a family affair at local parks and encourages people to explore main thoroughfares in Alhambra

The Alhambra Source reports on the best places to catch Pokémon, according to readers.

1. Almansor Park

Almansor Park has a few Pokestops, including a gym to battle. This is an opportunity to be the "very best like no one ever was."
