Gateway Cities Census Data
Description: Hawaiian Gardens’ name is said to have originated from a bamboo hut-style fruit stand in the area that was a popular stop for travelers in the 1920s. One visitor said it looked like a Hawaiian garden and the name stuck. In recent history, the city has developed homes and businesses and continues to forge ahead, while holding on to its past.
With its hotels, motels, and restaurants, the city still is a rest stop for travelers — as in the days of the original Hawaiian Garden fruit stand. Hawaiian Gardens, one of a few cities in Los Angeles County that permits card clubs and casinos, is attempting to use the card clubs’ revenue to attract and retain businesses.
