An outsider wouldn't know the neighborhood was so conveniently located and social from wandering down the peaceful streets of Sylvan Park.
Located nearby 280, 101 and 85 freeways, as well as shopping centers, the winding side streets off of Sylvan Avenue boast one- and two two-story homes, two well-kept senior mobile mobile-home parks, and a few apartment complexes, all centered on a spacious park.
Neighborhood traditions include an annual Fourth of July parade in the park and a potluck every six weeks, which a different neighbor hosts each time.
In December, there is a Christmas caroling event in which the neighbors Neighbors meet at one house and serenade each other with carols at a Christmas-caroling event every December.
