The city of Buena Park, California, is the second largest city in the state of California. It is located at the southern end of the E-Zone District and borders Fullerton to the east and Orange County, California to the west. Another attraction of Buena Park itself is its proximity to downtown, located north of downtown Santa Ana and south of the San Fernando Valley.
The Buena Park School District covers almost the entire northern half of the city, which is served by the Santa Ana Valley Regional Transit Authority (SAVTA) and Orange County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, while Centralia, Cypress, Magnolia and Savanna districts serve the rest of the city and flow into the Anaheim Union High School District. Fullerton, La Palma and Anaheim are also within the E-Zone and the San Fernando Valley. The Buen Park School District consists of seven schools: four elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school. The city's students are also served by two secondary schools in the area, the Central Valley Community College District (CCSD) in downtown and Orange City High School (OCHSD).
The most famous is the Buena Park, which many visitors consider a misnomer, although the current - actually world famous - theme park is top class. Buen Park was founded in 1887 by William Whitaker, a local rancher, who bought the once sprawling Rancho Los Coyotes in 1885 to build a cattle ranch. He had the intention to make it, but the Santa Fe railroad convinced him to use the land for a new city. According to H.A. Hub Chamberlain (who compiled "The Picture Story of Bueno Park"), this was done with a grant from the California Department of Education.
The city has built the park with homes on the site and it is maintained by the Buena Park Hitorical Society with the help of the Santa Fe Railroad and the California Department of Education.
The Los Coyotes Country Club, located northeast of the city, features a 27-hole championship course originally designed by Billy Bell in 1957 and redesigned by Ted Robinson in 1998. Anaheim is also home to one of California's most popular golf courses, the Anaheim Hills Golf Club. The Buena Park Golf Course and Santa Fe Railway Park are the central areas for planning your visit. It serves as a popular destination for golfers from across the state, as well as locals and visitors.
Knott's Berry Farm offers easy access to the park and children can dine in the on-site restaurant, which offers a varied children's menu. The hotel has been recently renovated and offers more modern amenities. It has a large entrance hall, which welcomes you in Buena Park. There is a free shuttle service from the hotel to Knott's and Santa Fe Railway Park, but there is a free shuttle service to area attractions at scheduled times.
Most visitors are unaware that Buena Park also has a popular restaurant and behaves like a favorite restaurant, including Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant, which has served fried chicken for more than 75 years.
The Knott family fenced the complex in 1968 and began charging entrance fees, making it one of the most popular attractions in Buena Park. In 1997, the Knotts family was sold and the new owner introduced a shift from thrill rides to more family-friendly attractions such as Magic Kingdom, Adventureland and Epcot.
Buena Park was first known as the Milk Center, and the railroads of Sante Fe and Southern Pacific built depots there. The Americanization continued, Buena Park became known for dairy farms, but the Santa Fe & Southern Pacific Railroad built a depot there and Buenaventures, it was first known, for example, in the late 19th century, the San Bernardino County Dairy Company, a subsidiary of Southern California Dairies.
Today, the city's main claim is Knott's Berry Farm, one of the most famous of its kind in the United States and the birthplace of John K. Kennedy.
Knott's Berry Farm is considered "America's first theme park," and next to Disneyland is the Peanuts Gang - a theme park area that features live shows, live music and a "meet snoopy" get-together. In recent years, a fun water park has been created that is perfect for cooling off in the California heat.
Financed by a loan measure adopted by the citizens of Buena Park on June 6, 1967, the construction of the current facility was completed in 1969. The library district was founded in 1967 as a result of a $1.5 million grant from the Los Angeles County Library Board.
The Buena Park Library District is a single-purpose library district administered by an elected trustee and comprised of its own staff, employees and staff, as well as a trustee. Buenas Park is managed by the City Council, which drafts the guidelines, while the city manager is responsible for the day-to-day management of the public libraries and other public services of Bueno Park.
