There are many things about Leimert park that make it so special for the residents who live in and around the Central city. The park is located in the heart of the neighborhood, giving nearby residents easy access to restaurants, cafes, parks, cinemas, and shops, but is also frequently used as a spot movie watching location. The park is also only a block-long away from a major bus stop, and even gives residents a view of the Glendale Freeway.

"I live, work and play in Leimert Park. My Family and I have lived here for over 3 years and cant believe how lucky we got to purchase such a great home with so many amenities within walking distance. The neighbors are like family and we can always walk to the Village if we are looking for something to do or to catch a bite to eat. With all the changes that are taking place, like the Baldwin Crenshaw mall remodel and the Metro rail line developments, we are so excited that we bought when we did. You should check it out before you buy anyplace else. Best bang for your dollar!"Leimert Park was established in 1928. It’s boundaries are roughly Rodeo Road on the north, Sutro Avenue on the east, Vernon Avenue on the south, and Crenshaw Boulevard on the west. The district's main street is Leimert Boulevard, which bisects the neighborhood from northeast to southwest. Developed by Walter H. "Tim" Leimert (for whom it is named), in 1928, it was designed by the famous landscape architects, the Olmsted brothers. Leimert Park was one of the first planned communities in Southern California designed for low- and middle-income families, and was considered a model of urban planning for its time.
