Pico Rivera has a below average violent crime rate and an above average property crime rate for Los Angeles.


Originally two neighborhoods (Pico and Rivera), the city of Pico Rivera was formed in 1958 when they were merged. This is a largely suburban town but has a mix of residential, commercial, and industrial areas. The main thoroughfares are what you'll find in a typical LA suburb, lined with shopping plazas, banks, and fast food chains. The Pico Rivera Towne Center is a particularly large shopping area, clocking in at 60 acres (24 hectares).

Housing-wise, this is a relatively affordable area compared to many parts of LA. The residential streets are clean and quiet. Most of the homes are three bedrooms or larger and sit have decent-sized yards. Residents say its a great place to start a family.

The neighborhood has access to several major highways so getting to other parts of the city is simple.

Pico Rivera is bordered on the north by El Monte, on the east by Whittier, West Whittier, and Santa Fe Springs, on the south by Downey, and on the west by Montebello.
