Barnes Park Independence Day Celebration

June 30th, 2016


Get ready for the annual Barnes Park July 4th Celebration and Fireworks Show! Independence Day is right around the corner, and you don’t want to spend it anywhere else! Join with the entire community of Monterey Park, along with people from all over the Los Angeles area, for the Patriotic Bash of the Year!

Bring your kids early in the afternoon for crafts, games, and food that will last all evening. Stick around for the live music and entertainment later in the day, and of course, stay for the fireworks right after sunset! There’s something for everyone at the Barnes Park July 4th Celebration and Fireworks Show!

Barnes Park is an essential part of the city of Monterey Park. Ranging 17 acres in total, Barnes Park has everything you could ask for, from playgrounds to an Olympic sized swimming pool, an indoor community center and basketball court to a beautiful open-air amphitheater.

Having a picturesque park like Barnes in the middle of an urban center such as Monterey Park is crucial for anyone who wants to live in the city, but doesn’t want to give up a connection to nature. Parks provide environmental support, as well as aesthetic value to a city, and Barnes Park is no exception. Not only that, but the many facilities available allow residents to live an active lifestyle and provide support for the community.

If you haven’t yet had the chance to explore Barnes Park, July 4th is a great time to do so. Not only will you be able to see the wonderful facilities and open spaces in Barnes Park up close and personal, but coming while all of the community is gathered for a celebration of our nation’s independence will allow you to see the park in its most beautiful state: when it is being used to bring a community together.

The San Gabriel Valley is abundant with many options for fine dining, entertainment and shopping venues, world class museums, and beautiful rose gardens. The San Gabriel Square is a giant three story mega-mall in the city of San Gabriel, which is situated along the Golden Mile District which is considered to be the most popular area of the entire San Gabriel Valley.

Living in Encanto Walk, you have access to all of the benefits of living in a modern urban area, without the isolation that can come from the anonymity of the city.

What you will find when you come to the BBQ is that the most valuable part of living in Encanto Walk is the sense of community that has developed in this beautiful slice of Monterey Park. If you’re moving to Los Angeles County for the first time, or if you’ve lived here for a while but are looking for a new home, there are plenty of houses to be found in the area, but few places offer the same communal feel as Encanto Walk. In Encanto Walk, you have neighbors who care, spacious floorplans, and enough seclusion from the hustle and bustle of urban life that you can feel the hometown vibe from the minute you pass through the gates.

Buena Park Youth Theater

June 16th, 2016

Buena Park is one of the most beautiful places in the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area, made all the more beautiful by the strong community within its borders. This community has grown around people genuinely caring for each other. You can see this in the institutions that have grown in Buena Park out of this care, institutions such as the Buena Park Youth Theater.

The Buena Park Youth Theater was established in 1980 by Ruth Walp after budget cuts severely limited what public schools could provide to children, especially in regard to extracurricular activities such as drama. The theater has been performing professional-quality musicals since its founding, musicals that show off the brightest talents of Buena Park’s youth.

This year’s summer production is Beauty and the Beast! Come on out to the Buena Park Youth Theater any day this weekend or next for a tale as old as time portrayed by Buena Park’s youngest actors! Shows are held at the Buena Park High School Performing Arts Complex Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30 pm, as well as Saturday and Sunday matinee shows at 2:30 pm. Tickets are $10, with a $2 discount for seniors and children 12 and under.

There’s always something to do in Buena Park for the whole family, but especially for kids. A community that truly cares about its children, Buena Park invests in kids through programs such as the youth theater at every opportunity.
For ticketing and more information on the Beauty and the Beast show, or to learn more about the history and traditions of the Buena Park Youth Theatre, visit:

With such a focus on family and an investment in children, along with such a variety of fun things to do at any time, Buena Park is one of the best places for a family looking to move to the Los Angeles metropolitan area. Aldea Walk is the perfect community within Buena Park for the modern family. “Aldea” in Spanish actually means little village, which is exactly what Aldea Park is, a little village nestled into the larger city. If you’re looking to move to the greater Los Angeles area, take the time to visit Aldea Walk and see why it’s such a lovely place to live:

Aldea Walk In Buena Park

June 14th, 2016

If you’re looking for small town life in the midst of one of the world’s largest metropolitan areas, look no farther than Aldea Walk! With spacious homes and a neighborhood you can rely on, Aldea Walk brings the comfort of home to the convenience and excitement of urban living.

Aldea Walk, named for the Spanish for small village, truly is a refuge of culture and neighborliness within the larger community of Buena Park, as well as the greater Los Angeles area. You don’t have to give up the entertainment, employment, and service conveniences of a big city for a tight-knit, happy smaller community. Instead, in Aldea Walk, you can have the best of both worlds!

Not only is Aldea Walk a great mix of urban and personable culture, but it is also a wonderful place to connect to nature within the city. Every home in Aldea Walk is energy-efficient, and comes complete with energy-star rated appliances. Not only can you live in Aldea Walk with a clear environmental conscience, but you can also experience the wonders of nature first hand on a regular basis, as mountains, parks, and beaches are all easily accessible from Aldea!
Close enough to the center of the Los Angeles metropolitan area to make for a short trip, yet far enough from the cacophony of center city life for peace and quiet in the evenings, Aldea Walk is the perfect place for LA commuters. It offers all of the benefits of a safe, close-knit community, while retaining the proximity needed for economical, quick, and easy commuting.

Buena Park and the LA metropolis offers a lot more than just employment, though. Whether you’re looking for the next biggest food trend, a sprawling shopping center, or sports teams for the kids, anything you could imagine as far as entertainment goes is accessible from Aldea Walk. A home in Buena Park isn’t just an address, or a place to live; it’s an experience.

There’s no place like home, and there’s no home like Aldea Walk that incorporates city life so well with the feel of a small village. If you’re looking to move to the Los Angeles area, take a moment to explore what we have available at Aldea Walk.

Flag Day Celebration in Westminster

June 9th, 2016

On June 14th, 1777, the United States Congress passed a resolution that set the stage for the America we know today. In one fell swoop, Congress established the “American Continental Army,” which later became the United States Army, and adopted the Stars and Stripes as the official flag of the United States. In 1919, Woodrow Wilson declared June 14th “Flag Day,” and in 1949 it was established as an official national holiday.

Come on out and show your patriotism this Flag Day with all of Westminster! Bring family and friends, and gather around the Civic Center on 8200 Westminster Blvd for refreshments, music, heartfelt remarks, and lots of fun! You won’t want to miss this great event in the heart of Orange County.

Bring them to the Flag Day Celebration in Westminster and let them feel like they are a part of American History! It will be a great learning experience, as well as a fun day for the whole family!

Westminster is a beautiful neighborhood in Orange County, California, made all the more beautiful when neighbors come together for celebrations like this. Westminster is a neighborhood rich in culture and tradition, and is one of Orange County’s most vibrant communities. With nearly endless shopping, the Huntington Beach, and all of Los Angeles within easy access, Westminster is a prime spot for fun. Living in Westminster, it’s easy to be proud to be an American.
