Cypress Park is stuck snugly between the Los Angeles River on the west and hills to the northeast and south. It's a mix of tree-lined streets with small homes and nondescript strip malls. Given recent plans to rehabilitate the Los Angeles River basin, Cypress Park will likely benefit from increased investment in the area.

The neighborhood also boasts the 40-acre Rio de Los Angeles State Park, which features trails, a baseball field, basketball courts, soccer fields, and a children's playground.

Cypress Park is bordered on the north by Mount Washington, on the east by Highland Park, on the south by Lincoln Heights, and on the west by Elysian Valley and Glassell Park.
