About Leimert Park

Leimert Park, built as a self-sufficient community in the 1920's, is a tiny suburban enclave, just off of Crenshaw Boulevard. The neighborhood is filled with Spanish colonial revival homes and bungalows in eastern Leimert and along Degnan. It has a deeply rooted art and music scene as well as an array of jazz and blues clubs with musicians playing almost every night. With close proximity to downtown, this vibrant neighborhood is full of historic housing, culture, and a great local art and music scene, which make Leimert Park one of the most popular neighborhoods to live in.
