All About Hacienda Heights
Hacienda Heights is located just under 19 miles from Downtown Los Angeles. Our neighboring cities are: Avocado Heights, City of Industry and La Puente- to the North; Whittier on the West; Whittier and La Habra- South; and Rowland Heights on the East. Data from our last census (2010) revealed that we are just over 54 thousand strong.
Because we are actively involved with preserving our precious hillsides, we have a limited level of hilltop housing. Some of us can look out to the valley, while others of us can look to the beautiful vistas. For exercise and visual pleasure, we have easy access to well kept hiking trails that meander the La Puente Hills. We are surrounded by many species of trees and some wildlife.
We are not fully developed, nor are we lost in search of identity, culture or belief. We have a history, we have a heritage, we have identity and we each are proud of our heritage. We are actively perusing our beliefs (or non-belief.) No one culture, belief system, or erected structure defines us. This is the U.S.A. and our community reflects this.
We are thankful to those who came before us for their contributions to this community that we call home, and we join those who are laboring today to maintain, build, and better our community.
