A bit about HP

Highland Park, in Northeast Los Angeles, has always been one of the key cultural centers of the city.  Situated along the Arroyo, it is one of the oldest communities in the city.  The term "Arroyo Culture" coined by Robert Winter, an architectural historian, was in reference to the bohemian culture that exploded in the early 20th century in the Highland Park-Garvanza district.  Once a quiet enclave for artists and architects, this community has developed into one of the fastest changing areas in Los Angeles. This wonderful community along the Arroyo with Eagle Rock to the north, South Pasadena to the east and Glassell Park/Mt. Washington to the west/southwest, is a neighborhood to explore and enjoy. 

The Highland Park-Garvanza district falls into LA City Council's Historic Preservation Overlay Zones which identifies and protects the character-defining features of the community including about 50 "historical cultural monuments" in the area.  It also includes and covers the historic homes throughout Highland Park that range from the Craftsman and Craftsman-like homes of the Arts and Crafts Movement to the Queen Anne, Mission Revival and Tudor Revival homes that the community so treasures.

Things to know and do

Highland Park remains home to a large community of artists, architects and designers which drive many cultural events in the area.   The NELA Art Walk takes place the 2nd Saturday of every month.  Art galleries stay open late and people enjoy an evening of art and good food throughout the area. The Arroyo Arts Collective is in its 30th year, bringing artists together to support the galleries and the uplift the community through art openings and events.


York Blvd. is a haven for new restaurants, clubs and shops - which is a gift to those at Occidental College, a few blocks away.  Figueroa St. is zoned for development with new restaurants and shops reviving the strip.


The Lummis House, also known as El Alisal, sits at the south tip of Highland Park where one can experience what life was like in Los Angeles in the late 19th to early 20th century.  


The metro Gold Line runs directly through the area from downtown Los Angeles through Highland Park to Pasadena and out to Sierra Madre. If you are looking to explore the area and are thinking about looking for a home along the Arroyo, this is a great place to start.
