Known as the “Center of the Southland,” Buena Park is a northwestern Orange County city with a distinct heritage, undergoing an exciting revitalization in business, residential and commercial projects. Adjacent to the City of Anaheim and just 12 miles northwest of Downtown Santa Ana, Buena Park is home to a large percentage of Korean, Chinese and Vietnamese Americans. With a population of over 81,000 residents, Buena Park is a community offering its residents many well-maintained parks and facilities, good schools and an array of youth, community and cultural events throughout the year. Buena Park is known internationally, mainly because of Knott’s Berry Farm, which began in 1920 by Walter Knott and his family. Today, this vibrant city’s main claim to fame is as the home of the popular Entertainment Zone or E-Zone. Located on and around Beach Boulevard, south of the 91 Freeway, the E-Zone is home to such exciting attractions as Knott’s Berry Farm, Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament, Ripley’s “Believe It or Not!” Museum, Knott’s Soak City U.S.A. and the swashbuckling Pirates Dinner Adventure.
