A city with many trees, Gardena is also known as “The Freeway City” because it’s just minutes from LAX, Long Beach Airport, Port of Los Angeles and the Alameda Corridor.
There are approximately an equal number of apartments and single-family homes in Gardena. Slightly more than half the homes were built during and immediately after
WW II. The newer styles have adopted the postwar model with three bedrooms.
Neighborhoods are clean and well maintained. The city prides itself on its half dozen parks, community center, community gym, swim center, seniors center and first class library. El Camino Community College sits on the southern border of town.
Education is provided by the Los Angeles Unified School District.
Gardena is six miles from LAX, five miles from the beach and 15 miles from downtown Los Angeles.
