We’re a cozy quiet neighborhood in Northeast Los Angeles with a country feel – close to downtown LA with a leash-free, award winning dog park within the larger park, shaded by 100 year old Sycamore tress that spreads along the Arroyo Seco.
This is a rural area, situated in a half-square-mile valley accessed by foot across the Avenue 60 bridge, by bicycle (Monterey Road, Avenue 60 are the main road from surrounding communities) and by motor via the Pasadena Parkway with two leads into the community: Via Marisol and Avenue 60.
It’s primarily a residential community; a small church with open doors to the community is in the center of the valley. Ringing the church complex is a small business district, anelementary school, an alternative high school, a high-achieving charter high school and a remarkable walled “cut” through the hills to Huntington Drive, a main thoroughfare from DTLA out to the eastern foothills.
THE HERMON ADVANCE TEAM was created in 2004 by life-long resident Wendi Riser to do just that— advocate for and advance the historic community of Hermon, established in 1903. Using media, community events, and ongoing contact with our Councilman, police, and schools, we get our unique history and ongoing news out to the broader surrounding areas. The following programs were created to enhance the beauty, safety, and camaraderie of our quaint community.
