Baldwin Park Reviews

115 reviews
All Categories
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.
Review Baldwin Park
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.
