Ocean park is a safe neighborhood that caters to anyone and everyone, including families and students. It's just a short distance to the beautiful Santa Monica beach and is home to great restaurants and boutiques!

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.
Because Santa Monica has its own police force separate from Los Angeles the police area able to be more effective. I have not had a bad experience with the police in santa monica other than them being bored and ticketing people for basically no reason. I do feel safe here though because the police are very visible and I have never had a problem with violence or crime.
