There are so many parks near by, and the roads are big and spacious. This setting makes it safe to walk with to nearby schools with kids, to bike, and jog! It's a very clean and quiet neighborhood! There are really great grocery markets, shopping centers, $1 theatre, gyms and other community socializing spots that makes this neighborhood great.

La Mirada is a great family environment with some pretty great people! I do feel safe in the city and although there are a lot of police officers, who are not always kind, i'm sure they are an important aspect of how the city is.
I really enjoy living in La Mirada because it is a clean and quiet city. It provides a safe environment for people of all ages. La Mirada is very proactive city that focuses on the community and its current serving military men and women, and veterans. This city is known for its tall trees.
