Baldwin Park Reviews

127 reviews
All Categories
Baldwin Park is a small town that is great for families looking to live in the suburbs. There are frequent community events and a variety of small businesses as well as mainstream businesses. It is located near the 605 freeway which is ideal for someone who frequently takes the freeway. The schools in this city are adept in teaching their students. There are no clubs and it is rare to find a bar around. This makes Baldwin Park a family friendly place where any night time events are usually community events that are appropriate for the whole family. The community is mainly inhabited by people of Hispanic/Latino ethnicity, making Baldwin Park not so diverse. There is a need for other cultures and ethnicities to come in and make it more diverse, considering that Hispanic/Latinos make up 80% of the population. Other than that, I think that Baldwin Park is a wonderful small town.
Review Baldwin Park
If you're ever in the neighborhood, be sure to stop by to visit the first ever In-N-Out! Aside from that, Downtown Baldwin Park has some great hole in the wall restaurants. If you have the option available to you, visit Covina or West Covina instead.
The city tends to have a lot of noise especially during the weekends when there are a lot of parties in neighborhoods around the city. Along with constant parties the city also allows fireworks. This poses a problem because every year around the neighborhood where I lived there are always fireworks going off from the beginning of June all the way until October. The main thing I would like to change or see more enforced is the firework policy and the use of illegal fireworks. The good thing about the city of Baldwin Park though is the Santa Fe Dam which is especially nice to go to on weekends for barbecues, birthdays, events, or just to simply run, walk, bike ride and enjoy the park. Although there are quite a bit of negatives for Baldwin Park recently it has started to develop and change, with newer housing, more shops and overall parts of it are becoming nicer.
