The residential architecture throughout California is all the proof you need to know that the state once belonged to the Spanish Empire. Of course, neighborhoods like Leimert Park with its master-planned community of Spanish Colonial Revival homes, have kept the style alive and well. While Leimert Park today is the center of both historical and contemporary African-American art, music, and culture, it was once one of the first comprehensively planned communities in Southern California that were designed primarily for White upper and middle-income families in the 1920’s.
The master plan for Leimert Park was designed by the Olmsted Brothers Landscape Architecture, sons of Frederick Law Olmsted, who is the landscape designer for Central Park in New York City and other major projects. Considered a model of urban planning for its time, Leimert Park was envisioned by Walter Leimert as a self-sufficient commercial district community, with a town square, movie theater, transportation services, and retail shopping centers. Considered a very desirable place to live, Leimert Park was also the first neighborhood to have a Homeowner’s Association (HOA).
In 2016, Leimert Park was voted “Neighborhood of the Year” by L.A. Curbed. In recent years, the community has come to be known for the Leimert Park Village Art Walk monthly event, which takes place the last Sunday of the month. Billed as “The Soulful Heart of L.A.” and taking place on the “people’s streets”, the Leimert Park Village Art Walk brings together all the best of the community’s culture, food, shopping, dancing, and of course local art. The neighborhood doesn’t stop there though. Leimert Park is known for hosting numerous community events throughout the year, all of which you would not want to miss.
