Baldwin Park: The Beginning
The legend of Baldwin Park involves a schism in the community that led to the creation of what we now know as Baldwin Park years after the area was no longer grazing land. In 1906 the city of Vineland (already in existence) was threatened by the prospect of a gent named Elias Baldwin setting up a rival city called Baldwinville. Now, there were no marketing departments back then to advise against the creation of a city with such a clunky name, but be that as it may, after a trip into a local Vineland grocery Mr. Baldwin nearly slipped and fell to his death but for a lucky catch by the wife of the grocery's owner. In gratitude, Mr. Baldwin agreed not to build said city with the unfortunate name, though a compromise was apparently reached, because Vineland hence became known as...Baldwin Park.
After official incorporation in the late 1950s, the area took off as a mecca for those seeking to live and work (which includes just about everybody, come to think of it). Though popular ways of passing the time early on included riding horses, today it includes just about everything you'd find in a modern suburban area, like joyriding and loitering outside the local mini mart. Ha, not really. Well, maybe really.
Baldwin Park Neighborhoods
The areas around town that will interest you depends on just who you are. An apartment in one part of town means access to outings (and innings, if a friendly game of softball is your thing) that are very different from what you'll get across town. The central city area, with a whopping 45% of its residents foreign born, offers a distinctly southern California experience (read: Spanish speaking). The area is pretty darn walkable, so be prepared for an especially un-California experience… The opportunity to leave you car behind and foot patrol it. Out in the Los Angeles Street and Stewart Avenue area, expect to find a relatively upscale set, with a cost of living that isn't very outrageous for Cali, but may surprise those from out of state. Dig in for yourself to see just what Baldwin Park has to offer by way of awesome livin.'
Doin' Stuff in Baldwin Park
Baldwin Park has really lived up to its name by being awarded a spot on a popular nonprofit's Playful Cities USA list. This means the city is a great place to launch a spitball in any direction and see it land in a park. Not into parks? Baldwin Park has much more to offer residents. The city is hot on the heels of its own ""Baldwin Park Idol"" competition. If you're a fan of the mega popular American Idol TV show, this ought to have you doing cartwheels. Actually, hold off on that. Save it for the judges. The Walnut Creek Nature Park and Irwindale Speedway offer relaxation and exhilaration, respectively, and the Teen Center and Skate Park helps prepare future Tony Hawks for the limelight.

How much should I expect to pay for utilities in Baldwin Park each month, depending on the time of year?
Utilities can vary widely depending on your family size and the size of your home. A family of three living in Baldwin Park should expect to pay an average of about $300 per month for utilities. As a general rule, people who live inland pay more for cooling than do those who live in coastal or near-coastal cities tend to. Because the summers are so hot, your utilities bill will certainly be highest from June through August, when you'll be using the air conditioning regularly. Heating expenses are usually not much of an issue since there are few months when you really need to turn on the furnace; and then, it's typically at night.
