Modestly priced homes and many fixer-uppers abound in the area. All you need to find the right gem is a real estate agent that’s familiar with the area.
Huntington Park demographics and transportation
Huntington Park is rich in culture and amenities. With a 95% concentration of those who identify as Latino or Hispanic, there are many globally-based communities and populations that make their home in Huntington Park. With a population of about 60,000, there are upwards of 12,000 families in town. Approximately 60% of the households in Huntington Park have children under the age of 18, making the town ripe for family-friendly fun. Huntington Park has the fourth largest concentration of people of Latino or Hispanic descent in the Los Angeles area, with East Los Angeles, Maywood, and Walnut Park being ahead.
The median income of Huntington Park residents is significantly lower than other areas of Los Angeles. Although almost one-quarter of families are below the poverty line in the area, this means that houses come cheap. You can buy a modestly priced house in the area that won’t set you back hundreds of thousands of dollars, like downtown Los Angeles apartments and condos would. There are many options to finance a mortgage and plenty of ways to lease or buy.
Education and transportation
Schools in Huntington Park are zoned into the Los Angeles Unified School District, meaning that students do not go to separate public schools from other suburban Los Angeles kids. There are technically eight public high schools that children can be zoned into, but most public school students will go to the new Linda Esperanza Marquez High School, or Huntington Park High School. There are two charter schools that also serve high school aged children in the area.
Huntington Park was meant to be a “streetcar suburb” when it was conceptualized in the early 20th century. Many people now have their own cars, and commute to and from the neighborhood for work and other activities. The Los Angeles metro serves the small town via bus service, and it has its own bus service, as well. Huntington Park’s dedicated bus routes are operated through the COMBI bus service. Huntington Park borders Bell and Lynwood.
