I have lived in the Ocean Park district for many years, I love it's peacefully quiet and calm feeling
. I've traveled the world and I'm always happy to come home.
This area is well kept and nice, I feel safe enough to go for a jog after sunset etc. There has never been any parking or ticketing issues for me in this area which is nice. Its a little bit quieter here even though we have neighbors and busy street close by. I see this area just getting more and more expensive to live. However, rent control is in effect in this area and that helps with rents going up drastically. I see more businesses coming into this area and it getting "cleaned up" even more. Because I am close to the beach and to shopping and restaurants and still have a neighborhood feel I am very happy with the location.
