Baldwin Park Reviews

110 reviews
All Categories
Baldwin Park is a knit tight community based in the suburbs of Los Angeles. My overall experience living here has been good. However, there is large homeless population at the on ramp of the 605. There are no local shelters for the homeless in Baldwin Park. The nearest shelter in the next city over in West Covina. See that those who are going without, this may cause trouble for he/she to obtain such benefits from a shelter. A few may have access to transportation such as a bike and or public transportation. But for majority, this is not likely the case. It is urgent this issue be addressed and resolved. I have written a letter to mayor addressing my concerns but yet to hear back.
Community rich with Mexican culture. The sense of feeling belonged will always be captured when the city hosts public events. Despite the unfortunate events happening between citizens and police officials, Baldwin Park has never been a victim of such violence. I feel safe in my city and I am proud to be a member of it diverse and welcoming enviorment. It is also the birthplace of In-n-Out burger.
One of the reasons I gave Baldwin Park 3/5 star review is despite all its set backs, I am still pretty happy with my life. I have lived here all 17 years of my life and although it's not the best or safest place to live its the people around me who make it better. My family especially my parents do their best to shield me from things that I shouldn't see and what other people will probably never see and my friends are a good distraction. Although I do not like to say negative things about where I live I am going to have to be. I am happy where I live but there are a lot of things that this area needs work on. First off, it really is not the safest place to live. I have had home break-ins in the past and someone has even broken into my parents car. There is not much diversity here, it is mainly a Hispanic community. It is also not much of a family friendly place.
