Huntington Park History

Originally named La Park, Huntington Park did not get its present name until 1902, when developers A.L. Burbank and E.V. Baker enticed Henry Huntington to extend a line of his Pacific Electric Railway through their development. Incorporated as a city of only a little more than 500 residents in 1906, Huntington Park has since evolved into a major retail center for the Los Angeles County region. Its varied industries today include manufacturing of industrial equipment along with metal, glass and rubber products.

Huntington Park Events and Attractions

Huntington Park offers its residents and visitors more than 31 acres of total park space, which include playgrounds, athletic facilities and picnic areas. Among the parks in the city are: Chesley Park, Civic Center Park, Freedom Park, Salt Lake Park, Senior Citizen Park, Skate Park and Westside Park. Annual events in Huntington Park include Carnaval Primavera, a primarily Latino cultural celebration of spring. Held in April, the event features arts and crafts, amusement rides, two concert stages with live entertainment plus samplings of many varieties of Latin cuisine. Another popular event is the "Sabor de Mexico Lindo - Downtown Festival." This October event pays tribute to the culture and heritage of Mexico through music, dancing, food and entertainment. Huntington Park is also home to the International Police Museum of Southern California, which houses a large collection of police and military memorabilia, including hats, patches, badges and insignia.
