    I grew up in South Gate. But when I moved with my grandma before she passed away, she lived in Huntington Park. It’s a bit crowded here, I’ll admit that, but it’s home.

    I moved here back in 1965 from Texas.The majority of people in H.P, were caucasians. The rest were chicanos. There were only a handful of mexicans nationals from Mexico. About 20 at my high school and they didn't speak good english and the chicanos didn't speak good spanish. Some didn't speak spanish at all. H.P. was a great place to live. Now it turned into a ghetto. lol

    LOL I grew up there too and went to Gage Jr Hi and Huntington Park High School... probably waaaayyy before your time...My Mom also graduated from HPHS. I graduated in 1976. My Mom graduated in 1957. Former HP Mayor Rick Loya was my health teacher at HPHS. It was a great place then.... I guess it still is depending on your perspective. We still own property there. I grew up at 3046 Flower st. (in Walnut Park). My Grandma paid $13,000 for the house in 1959. Went to Kindergarden at State Street School. The DelMart on the corner of State St and Hope St was the "happening place" in the 60's lol Or the Wichell's Donut Shop or A&W Rootbeer on State St and Florence. The Mobile gas station on the corner of State and Flower was leased by my father for a couple years, then by a guy named Claire Prosser all through my teen years. The store and gas station are long gone. As are most of the things I grew up with there. My Grandma's house across from the hospital was bulldozed along with many others to make more parking for downtown H.P. Our house that my Dad built from a 2 br into a 6 br on Flower St still stands as he built it, but is no longer the biggest house in the neighborhood. When I was a kid the street car tracks were still running down Pacific Blvd... I'll never forget the pig murals in Vernon! Or the smell when driving by! The L.A. riverbed was our escape place then.... So many great memories from growing up there. I went to the Huntington Park Christmas Lane Parade every year of my young life. Don't know it is even still a thing. I left H.P for O.C. in 1978 Huntington Park and the surrounding area will always hold a special place in my heart and memories.

    I lived in Long Beach/Downey and worked in H.P. at near Slauson and Florence in late 80's and early 90's and H.P. was great.

    I live in Maywood. It seems comfortable there if you get used to it there for about a year. It’s a good place to live but there’s a bunch of Latinos like me. But bad thing is that there’s gang members there and marijuana and other drugs or weed.

      I love the latin culture, and they were here before white man's greed bullied them and the native American Indians out. Something to think about.

    Huntington park is not a good city to live in this days there's alot of thief,homeless,drug adicted,gang members around the neighboorhood. My cathalitic converter got stolen,My car battery got stolen too in the afternoon also somebody broke my car window on the street. The city of Huntington Park is not doing anything to solve the delinquent problems this days.

      That was me not too long ago couldn’t wait to leave the city. Now I find myself going back every now and then for the food. They have some good taco places. Yes, HP has terrible parking I don’t miss that at all. Good luck on your search, you will find something better. I felt like I was never going to get out of HP lol I felt stuck.

      @Christina Cyrax you might be right, it could’ve been 2017. They changed the arcades to where they didn’t take quarters anymore and you just paid for a certain time limit. It was kind of whack and it was empty I stopped going.
