The City of Los Angeles has many smaller neighborhoods and communities that align the historic Arroyo Seco Parkway. The Arroyo Seco Parkway is also known as the 110 Freeway. This was the first freeway in the western United States and it connects Pasadena to Downtown Los Angeles. It is named the “Arroyo Seco Parkway” because it runs along side the Arroyo Seco River. The Arroyo Seco Parkway is lined with large, beautiful sycamore trees that are typically found only near water. Residents that live in these communities are able to easily utilize the Parkway to travel to the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, where so many jobs are located.
Elysian Park is a small community located in the Elysian Valley. The Elysian Park community is situated in the northeast corner of Elysian Valley. This neighborhood is only 1.5 square miles and has 2500 residents. This is only 1500 people per square mile, which makes Elysian Park one of the least densely populated areas in Los Angeles. The population is split almost equally between Latinos and Asians with an average yearly income of 28,000, which is low for Los Angeles. Elysian Park is located in the Chavez Ravine along with Dodger Stadium.
