Hancock Park

 

Welcome to Hancock Park

Urban elegance in a centrally located Los Angeles neighborhood
 
One of the few areas in Los Angeles to offer both a warm, neighborhood feel and a sophisticated city atmosphere, Hancock Park is full of quiet residential streets and beautiful parks. Stroll down the tree-lined streets, and you’ll catch the scent of jasmine lingering in the air. Hop in the car and cruise down iconic LA boulevards. In Hancock, you’re only moments away from world-class museums and culinary hot spots.  
 
Hancock Park was created in 1924 by oilman George Allan Hancock, who donated 23 acres of the Hancock Ranch to the County of Los Angeles. There was a condition to his generosity, and he insisted the park must be preserved and the fossils found therein properly exhibited. In the area, you can still find 1920’s era bungalows alongside luxury high-rise apartments buildings and Art Deco-style estates.

People and Lifestyle

The elegant Hancock Park is home to an affluent, cultured community that regularly takes advantage of the city’s fine art museums, cultural offerings, and world-class dining. Upscale and refined, Hancock Park eschews the pomp and pretension of flashier LA neighborhoods, favoring quiet confidence. You’ll often find residents walking the cobblestone walkways in Larchmont Village or lost in thought at a sidewalk cafe table, pen in hand or laptop open in front of them. A neighborhood this pretty is made for walking, and Hancock Park locals enjoy strolling the leafy streets with their pups.
 

Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping

Hancock Park offers an easy drive to some of LA’s best boutiques and bistros, but residents will often stay local for dinner because the culinary offerings in this long-established neighborhood are so mouth-watering. Village Pizzeria offers top-notch New York-style pies and slices. Grab something to go from the lunch counter, or settle in at one of the sidewalk tables to enjoy the balmy weather. The creative Bludso’s Bar and Que serves up Texas barbeque, classic meats and sides, and craft cocktails.
 
The family-owned Larchmont Village Wine, Spirits, and Cheese provides fine wines from around the world, artisanal specialty foods, and deli fare. The gourmet sandwich menu is awe-inspiring, and this is a go-to spot for lunch and picnic fare. Pop into the Fahey Klein Gallery for an elegant afternoon of high art. This highly esteemed art gallery specializes in 20th-century photography, including portraits, landscapes, and still lifes.

Things to Do

Historic and refined, Hancock Park offers sophisticated ways to spend the day. Founded in 1919, the beautiful Wilshire Country Club is an 18-hole private golf club with a close-knit membership and upscale dining. The gorgeous greens have hosted PGA tours and regularly offer tournaments. 
 
Spend Sundays at the Larchmont Village Farmers Market, one of the neighborhood's favorite meeting spots. Regional vendors provide fresh organic produce, prepared food, and fresh-cut flowers, so bring your prettiest straw tote and peruse the tables at this pretty outdoor market. You may even find a puppy and kitten adoption organization, so prepare to snuggle something adorable - and maybe go home with a new family member!
 
Hancock Park is known for its tree-lined, cobblestone walkways, shady beauty, and majestic homes, so it makes sense that the Windsor Square Hancock Park Historical Society offers tours of some of the most stunning estates in the neighborhood, most of which are only open to the public for this special event.
