Where to Live
Because of its narrow and small size, Harvard Park has limited real estate space. If you want to live close to the park and have easy access to its recreational facilities then you'll want to live around West 61st Street and West 62nd Street. Residences located closer to busy main streets like Slauson Avenue, Western Avenue, Florence Avenue, or Normandie Avenue will experience more noise and traffic. A majority of the properties in Harvard Park are small, single-family homes with a few low-rise apartment complexes scattered throughout the area. Housing in this area tends to be more affordable when compared to other parts of the city.
Where to Eat
The culinary scene in Harvard Park features a few options that reflect the cultural tastes of its residents. Some of the best Latin American cuisine and soul food can be found along Normandie Avenue. Just over the busy intersection at Slauson Avenue and Western Avenue, you'll find a few fast food chains, groceries stores, breakfast eateries, and ice cream shops. There are also a number of popular and well-reviewed burger and hot dog joints down Western Avenue. But if you're looking for something more exotic than then you will have to venture outside of neighborhood to satisfy your unique palate.
What You'll See
Harvard Park is an urban, working-class community made up of families, singles, young people, and children. The neighborhood's buildings tend to be older and rough around the edges, but locals take pride in their home.
Friday Night Fun
A Friday night is relatively active due to the large population of its young residents. Residents tend to hang out at a local bar on Western Avenue or enjoy dinner at one of the restaurants nearby. However, there aren't many go-to locations or entertainment spots within the neighborhood so you'll have to venture outside of the community boundaries to find a lively scene.
The Perfect Sunday
A perfect Sunday in Harvard Park usually consists of a brunch or lunch at one of the restaurants along the major thoroughfares. Some residents spend their Sunday mornings attending service at one of the churches located in the neighborhood. Community events are often held at the local park that's in the center of the neighborhood. Families large and small get together in on the grass lawns for picnics, BBQs, parties, and other outdoor recreational activities. The Harvard Park Recreation Center also provides facilities that are available for public use such as outdoor pools and waterslides, baseball fields, tennis courts, basketball court, playground, skate plaza, and sand volleyball court.
