Pacoima Los Angeles: Panorama City

The Southern part of Los Angeles has been a home to me almost my entire life. I studied, worked, and matured within the rusty pavements of our little community. The place is actually a mixture of both wonderful city places and overcrowded suburbs.

I can still remember how me and my siblings would dive in a year-round heated pool at the Northern part of Pacoima. It is one of our favorite things we do together. It was as if yesterday when everything was so plain and simple but now the looks of this place has totally changed. Shopping malls, recreational centers, and different small shops have now emerged on every corner.

Staying here made me able to follow its transformation from simplicity to a well-improved place. Year after year, new establishments are constructed and houses are renovated. The city helps convert substandard houses into safer homes for families to have a better quality of life.

In another sense, there can be a disadvantage living in the area due to the increasing crime rate lately. Burglary, vandalism, and gang wars are the most common offenses. The good thing is that our police officers are now doing their best to maintain the peace and order within.

Reminiscing, I can still remember how we would visit the only golf club in our city, The Hansen Dam Municipal Golf Course .The golf course features a lit driving range, putting greens, and practice chipping. Another part of our routine is visiting the Roger Jessup Rec Center which is a small park in Pacoima. The park includes barbecue pits, children's play area, community room, and picnic tables. Families like to gather there every Sunday and have a blast on the weekend.

Pacoima actually is comprised of different types of individuals which include a mixture of different ethnic backgrounds and cultures. This situation gave way to the diversified nature of our city. Most people are able to establish a home because of the low rates for housing in Pacoima as compared to other parts of the city. Buying land and houses as well as monthly rentals are cheaper as compared to surrounding areas. This place not only made a mark in my life but served as a haven for my soul. I still strongly endorse Pacoima as one of the most wonderful places to start a family.
