Buena Park Reviews

133 reviews
All Categories
Buena Park is a nice city to live in for a relatively peaceful life. It is somewhat expensive to live in, but living here is a great choice as it is near many tourist attractions and amusement parks. Just a short drive away, you can visit Knott's Berry Farm, Medieval Times, Pirate's Dinner Adventures, and so many other popular restaurants. If you want more of a nightlife experience, Downtown Fullerton, filled with bars and pubs, is merely a 10 minute or less drive. If you want a more family-friendly fun, then a 20 minute drive will take you straight to Disneyland or Downtown Disney! Buena Park is at the heart of entertainment and an exciting life that keeps you wanting more and more. I recommend living here.
Review Buena Park
I enjoyed my time living in Buena Park! The people were fantastic and I really got to know the area well. There are many shopping malls and it is relatively easy to find whatever you need close by, however there are some areas that are very dirty! There are a lot of homeless people around the area that leave a lot of trash and stand in need of help, though I never felt like I was in any danger around them.
Buena Park is between the heart of Orange County and the heart of Los Angeles. With that said, the city has several main freeways intersecting through. It has its own mall, movie theater and close to various attractions such as Disneyland, Knotts Berry farm, and the Citadel outlets!
