About South Park

The Los Angeles neighborhood of South Park is located just far enough south of downtown for the surroundings to be purely residential rather than urban and industrial. Note that there is a section of downtown L.A. also called South Park, but the two areas are separated completely. In this cozy South L.A. neighborhood, you'll find tree-lined streets with modest homes as well as some larger estates and condo buildings. South Park's location just off the 110 freeway makes it convenient for people to get to downtown as well as southbound commuting.

Getting Around South Park

Around South Park

South Park may be a very small neighborhood, but it has its share of highlights for weekend fun. Enjoy a home-cooked meal al carbon-style from one of the many authentic Latin restaurants in Avalon Boulevard. For entertainment, there are several dance clubs and pool halls on South Broadway. Along with the Staples Center, Coliseum, and countless more options just blocks away, South Park puts you right in the middle of L.A.'s arts and entertainment scene.

Young families make up a large portion of the population in South Park, and it's not uncommon to see children walking the short distance home from school. The parks are crowded on the weekend as the locals love to spend time outdoors. Evenings tend to be quiet in the neighborhood, with most people staying home while others are out for looking for fun options and entertainment in downtown. With young professionals living in apartments and condos and older native Angelenos in the old mission-style houses of South Park, the neighborhood always has a vibrant mix of people sharing the scene.

From food trucks to sit-down family-style restaurants, South Park has numerous options along its main roads. Carnitas and chicharrones, which are Latin-origin pork delicacies, dominate the menus of the many Mexican and Salvadorian restaurants in the neighborhood, but there is a little bit of everything else as well. From crepes-only diners to noodle bars and boba tea, eating in South Park is an emblematic Los Angeles experience.

Larger houses and multi-unit buildings were built on the west side of South Park, closer to the freeway. There are more parks and green spaces in the center of the neighborhood, which is where the schools are located. Further to the east are smaller homes and quieter streets. South Park is laid out in a neat grid design and the homes on each block are quite similar. The biggest consideration in deciding where to live in this area would be your proximity to the freeway such as Vernon Avenue and Central Avenue that will bring a bit more noise and traffic.
