In my experience, Bell Gardens is a wonderful community. I was raised my entire life in this city, and up to now, I wouldn't have it anyway else. Bell Gardens offers many recreational activities in the community park and provides safety from the Bell Gardens Police Department. The neighborhood watch is also an active group for the community and its many great places to hang out and relax are offered here.

Bell Gardens is a small town, easy to get around. Everything you need you find in bell gardens, stores schools, parks, even a hotel and casino. The school is wonderful, my daughters go there and i am impressed with the quality of education. My daughters love going to school with enthusiasm and eager to learn new things each day. I really love everything about Bell Gardens, best place for me to grow up and have my girls grow up here too.
