California, U.S.A.
Welcome to Huntington Park, California.
Huntington Park is one of the Gateway Cities in southeastern Los Angeles County, and home to around 58,000 people. The city was incorporated in 1906 and named after the prominent industrialist Henry E. Huntington. The city was founded as a streetcar suburb, serving workers in the expanding industries to the southeast of downtown Los Angeles. In modern day, 30% of the city's residents still work at factories in nearby Vernon and Commerce. Downtown Huntington Park was once home a thriving commercial district along the stretch of Pacific Boulevard. The district served the city's blue-collar residents as well as those of nearby cities like Bell, Cudahy, South Gate and Downey. Like so many other cities in the area at that time, Huntington Park was home to a predominantly Caucasian community. In the 1950s, the community by Alameda Street and Slauson Avenue strongly defended segregation lines that separated them from the African-American population. This changed however, due to a combination of events; including the decline of American manufacturing, the implosion of the Southern California real estate boom and the collapse of the aerospace and defense industry. By the 1990s, virtually all of the Caucasian population had disappeared from the area and was replaced by Latino-Americans and recent Mexican immigrants. Today, Pacific Boulevard is once again a burgeoning commercial strip and a major retail center serving working-class residents of southeastern Los Angeles County. One big change has occurred though; most of the storefront signs are now in Spanish. Aside from a bustling Hispanic shopping district, Huntington Park is home to a number of parks. In total, the City of Huntington Park provides residents more than 31 acres of park space, including the Chesley park, Robert Keller Park and Freedom Park. Amenities include playgrounds, picnic areas, athletic facilities, a skate park and more. The Salt Park houses a terrific Farmers Market each Wednesday, where residents can buy fresh produce form a variety of seasonal vendors; selling items like bee products, eggs, fruits, herbs, nuts plants and vegetables.
