The city of La Habra is located at Orange County’s northernmost corner. It is cozy and quaint, as it covers only 7.3 square miles and has a population of 61,789. Back when the city was first incorporated, it was known as the largest avocado producer in Southern California. Today, while some avocado farms still remain, La Habra is a mostly residential community. Conveniently located within an hour of Southern California’s beautiful beaches, mountains and desert recreation areas, it’s the perfect place to raise a family.
There are 20 parks, a Children’s Museum, Community Theater, Tennis Center and a diverse Community Center. Additionally, residents take advantage of senior citizen programs, recreation classes, youth and adult sports programs, facility rentals, and an active volunteer program. Some local points of interest include the Boulevard of the Bells, World-Famous Corn Festival, Richard Nixon Law Office, Children’s Museum at La Habra, and Bonita Sport Complex.
La Habra has three different school districts. Combined, they operate eight elementary schools, three middle schools and two public high schools. There are a variety of private and specialty schools as well, such as preschools and schools for those with special needs. The city is the perfect place to call home for those seeking an intimate community environment, but still wish to be conveniently located to a variety of events and activities.
