Park Estates is home to ranch style and mid-century houses developed and built largely by Lloyd Whaley starting around 1950 through the 1960's and who was supposedly inspired by architect Paul R. Williams' original design for his own home. This area is marked by quiet residential streets with spacious homes on wide lots. Over time, contemporary Mediterranean, Norman or Tudor architectural styles have been added as new residents have taken advantage of rebuilding on the area's large lots.
The area is characterized by low traffic, yet is near major shopping conveniences, the historic Rancho Los Alamitos site which dates back to about 1806, the 405 Freeway and is adjacent to the California State University Long Beach campus.
Anaheim Road, the main artery through the tract, is lined with pepper trees, and is the same road once part of the Bixby family's private ranch holdings prior to the early 1950's.
