Around Rancho Park
There are numerous pocket neighborhoods in Rancho Park, which are bordered by the many major commercial streets that pass through the neighborhood. The most coveted section is probably the southeast portion of the neighborhood, a hilly, idyllic section with lush lots that are quiet and far from the traffic. However, this area isn’t walkable to any of the burgeoning commercial portions of Rancho Park, which are off Pico and near National and Westwood Boulevards. With the addition of the Expo Train Line, the southwestern part of Rancho Park has become very popular, despite it’s close proximity to both the 405 and 10 freeways.
The culinary scene in Rancho Park has improved dramatically in recent years but it has been mostly concentrated to the major streets of National and Sepulveda Boulevards. Much of this is due to the success of the Westside Pavilion complex, which has a mall but has great restaurants and one of the best independent movie theaters in Los Angeles. Numerous restaurants and bars have thrived within a few blocks of this commercial complex and it has really benefited this portion of the neighborhood. There are a few other restaurants and bars off Pico Boulevard, but if you want to be able to walk to commercial locations, you probably want to live over here.
With the eponymous Rancho Park taking up a huge chunk of the adjacent neighborhood, complete with an 18-hole public golf course and several baseball diamonds, there is a constant mix of golfers and recreational athletes. With Fox Studios’ back lot located in the northeast portion of the neighborhood, there are also a lot of Hollywood types who have made the trek west.
A Friday night in the neighborhood is relatively quiet in the southeast side of Rancho Park, in the leafier and hillier section. On the northside, however, there will be a lot of action, as the restaurants and bars will most likely be packed to the gills with locals. There are plentiful options along Pico Boulevard, which hosts cocktail lounges, brew pubs, and high-end restaurants. For a low-key night out, there is a movie theater on Pico Boulevard and additional restaurants on Overland and National Boulevards.
A perfect Sunday in Rancho Park consists of visiting the Palms Recreation Center for a picnic or some other recreational sport. Step into one of the restaurants along Pico Boulevard for brunch or stop into a café along Overland Avenue for a quick pick-me-up. A trip to the beach could also be in the cards, as there is now access to the Pacific Ocean via train on the Expo line that runs through the neighborhood in under 20 minutes, or a 15-minute car ride.
