Reflecting on a day spent in Canterbury Knolls, one blogger, Eric Brightwell, refers to the area by saying, “The way neighborhood names work in LA is this: the more ghetto the neighborhood, the more quaintly English sounding its name. Therefore, I had some notion of what to expect of Canterbury Knolls. Not surprisingly, when we arrived, there were neither knolls nor Kentish people to be seen.” The Los Angeles Times wrote an article about the area entitled, “Asphalt Jungle or Green Meadows?”. To locals, however, Canterbury Knolls is simply home. As is the case with much of South Los Angeles, Canterbury Knolls is made up of small single story homes, box-shaped apartments, and grid oriented stores. A northern portion of the neighborhood runs along the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railroad and is much more industrialized than the rest of the area. It’s there that you’ll find the Slauson Super Mall, a 177,129 square foot swap meet offering everything from nail services to authentic eateries, toys, clothing, and more.
Today, Canterbury Knolls is a vibrant neighborhood that enjoys all the benefits of community life including annual block parties and other local events. While the neighborhood sits at the southern end of the Los Angeles area, it’s close to an array of local favorites like the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles, the California African American Museum, Space Shuttle Endeavour, Velaslavasay Panorama, the USC Fisher Museum of Art, Rodeo Drive, Staples Center, Sunset Boulevard, the Grammy Museum at L.A. Live, and Melrose Avenue.
