Hi, I am having a baby soon and I am look at houses in the Redondo Beach El Nido area. How is that area for raising a family? How is the safety, school? I heard that East of Inglewood Ave is bad. This place is just East of it by Franklin Park. How would you rate that area? If I don't get this one, where in RB or Torrance should I look? (MB is out of the price range). Thanks a lot!!

I lived in North Redondo (90278) in the ‘90’s off of Curtis Ave and Aviation Blvd. It’s further west than the location you’re asking about. Generally, I would say that North Redondo is a safe, family oriented neighborhood. Back then, many of my neighbors were aerospace engineers who worked in nearby El Segundo. It was a desirable neighborhood back then and I know that real estate prices have appreciated significantly over the past years.

Other areas to look: South Redondo, West Torrance.

Riviera Village in South Redondo is nice. Accessible to the beach, shopping and dining.

RB is pretty pricey, you may get just a slightly better value in Central Torrance (Old Town) or North Torrance.
If you're looking to stay in the N. Redondo price point, I would definitely recommend S. Torrance--minus the area around Lake Walteria due to soil movement.

Also, don't forget parts of Hawthorne generally west of the 405 has great schools and is right next to MB, El Segundo, etc. It's a very small section of Hawthorne, but if you stay W of the 405 you'll be in a great area. Think Holly Glen and areas around the aerospace companies.

Hope this helps!

This is a somewhat old thread but wanted to add:

Franklin Park/El Nido is an amazing neighborhood. Basically a SFR neighborhood; lots of families with young children, along with many original owners. Everyone here is super-friendly. Not sure why anyone told you east of Inglewood is bad—we're east of Inglewood and it's as nice a neighborhood as that west of Inglewood. Having Franklin Park easily accessible is a godsend, especially if you have children (and if you're west of Inglewood, you have to cross Inglewood Ave to get here, which is tricky bc Inglewood is an especially busy street—east of Inglewood and you're a short walk away from a beautiful park!).

Schools here so far have been amazing for our kids; they love their teachers and their friends. Small, tight-knit community. FYI: if you're east of Firmona, technically you are in Torrance, not Redondo Beach. Different schools (Torrance schools are great schools too, but if you were aiming specifically for RB schools that distinction is important).

Hope you found your home here; good luck!
