Learn More About Cerritos

Once a landscape filled with dairy farms and known as Dairy Valley, Cerritos now stands as the “Geographical Center of Southern California,” offering a harmonious blend of culture, nature, and modern amenities. As a key player among the Gateway Cities in southeast Los Angeles County, Cerritos offers a plethora of activities for all ages.

Art enthusiasts can wander through the Cerritos Sculpture Garden, admire installations through the city’s “Art in Public Places” initiative, or even explore the futuristic Cerritos Millennium Library, complete with a 15,000-gallon saltwater aquarium featuring sharks. For the active residents, options range from swimming at the Olympic Swim Center, golfing at Iron-Wood Nine Golf Course, or enjoying a day in one of the city’s 28 parks like Heritage Park or Cerritos Regional Park, the latter even featuring a man-made lake stocked for sport fishing.

Shopaholics can indulge their retail cravings at the Los Cerritos Center mall, making the city a shopper’s paradise. Although larger than its neighboring cities like Artesia, Bellflower, Lakewood, and Buena Park, Cerritos maintains a strong sense of community. Families enjoy a variety of home sizes and styles, set along picturesque tree-lined streets and in proximity to top-tier schools.

Strategically located, the city is just a short drive away from the beach, Disneyland, and downtown LA, offering residents the best of Southern California right at their doorstep.
