Quality of Life
A Great Place to Live, Visit, & Do Business
The Cerritos region has been called the most ethnically diverse community of its size in the United States. With its central location, financially secure local economy, beautiful environment, and innovative approach to development and services, Cerritos is a great place to live, visit, and do business.
Within the city’s 8.9 square miles, many amenities are available in Cerritos, including the world’s first “Experience Library” with museum-quality exhibits and world-class conference facilities. Cerritos also offers more than 24 award-winning parks and recreation facilities and programs, including the renowned Cerritos Olympic Swim & Fitness Center and the Iron-Wood Nine Golf Course; innovative public safety programs through the Cerritos Sheriff's Station/Community Safety Center; an inexpensive and convenient local transit system; available affordable housing for seniors; a community college and top-rated school district; extensive senior services available at the Cerritos Senior Center; and premier music, dance and theater performances at the world-class Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts.
While Cerritos' central location has spurred its growth, innovation and leadership have sustained it. The City has pioneered in many areas, including building America's first solar heated city hall, undergrounding all utility lines, and constructing a recycled water system to irrigate parks and street medians. Beautifully maintained neighborhoods, carefully planned retail areas, abundant recreational facilities, and world-class cultural amenities make Cerritos an exciting, attractive place to live and work.
