About Exposition Park

South of downtown and adjacent to the University of Southern California, Exposition Park covers a lively and historic stretch of South Los Angeles. The neighborhood is filled with theaters, museums, sports venues, and plenty of green spaces, so there's always enough events and activities to keep people of all ages entertained. Retro diners and landmark jazz clubs dot the landscape with colorful antique signage, while college and professional sports keep the streets and parking lots filled. Exposition Park is also one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city, and the residential streets are populated by glorious examples of Victorian and Spanish Revival architecture that have largely been preserved.

Around Exposition Park

In the center of Exposition Park, to the west of the park itself, many streets are dominated by student housing such as historic fraternity and sorority houses. You can find more single-family homes on quieter streets in the vicinity of Vernon Avenue, from Western Avenue to Figueroa. Keep in mind that the Coliseum hosts major music festivals and other large events, in addition to football games. Avoiding the major thoroughfares will cut down on parking and noise issues.

Vintage restaurants light up most intersections with choices ranging from soul food to East Coast sandwich shops to drive-thru burrito joints. The nearby college keeps the foodie scene dynamic and contemporary as well, so expect the latest fusion cuisines to pop up quickly in Exposition Park. There's also a healthy dose of hookah bars and night clubs for dinner and entertainment with a global flair.

Campus life and the major venues in the neighborhood keep things moving and lively. Outside of small shops and restaurants, you'll see elderly locals telling stories to fresh-faced college students. Families like to spend time outside for block parties and community events. Despite the transient student population and events that come and go, Exposition Park has a thriving and cohesive neighborhood spirit when you really spend time exploring the streets.

Catch a concert at the park or Coliseum, or perhaps an incredible documentary at the California Science Center. Keep dinner casual with cheesesteaks or nacho plates from one of the countless iconic fast food gems. Top off the evening with a rocking night at a world-class jazz bar with cheap drinks and a hot band.

Exposition Park is home to many of the best museums and green spaces in Los Angeles. Take your pick from the Rose Garden, Natural History Museum, or another attraction and spend a few hours indoors or outdoors having fun while learning. You can picnic at Exposition Park or stroll over to USC to see the architecture, fountains, and gardens on campus.
