Although most of the region is residential, there are businesses such as restaurants, fast food outlets, grocers, convenience stores, and other services along main thoroughfares such as Brookhurst Street and Euclid Street, running through the area, or Lapalm Avenue on the northern and Lincoln Avenue on the southern borders. Most residences can reach local businesses on foot without having to leave the neighborhood.
Most of the neighborhood is residential with single-family bungalow-style homes on spacious properties that are well set back from streets. Sidewalks in the area are separated from roads by grassy berms that provide a softer surface for doggy paws walking the neighborhood. Yards have plenty of landscaping with lawns and trees, fences, gates, and other landscaping features. Many homes feature drought-tolerant plants that are suited to the sunny, dry climate.
