A Little About Us
Oxford Square is located in Mid-Town, between Pico & Olympic Blvd and comprises both of Victoria Ave and S. Windsor Blvd. Oxford Square is centrally located in Los Angeles - a real advantage since no part of Los Angeles is ever far. We are nestled on a hill and given on clear and sunny day (which is often in Los Angeles) we have beautiful views of both the Hollywood Sign and Griffith Park Observatory.
Oxford Square has been fortunate to be located on a ridge that allows many of our homes to view both the Hollywood sign and Griffith Park Observatory. The geography allows for residents to enjoy a reliable afternoon "beach breeze," which is a godsend especially during hot L.A. summer months. In fact, "Cheers Beach Breezes!" is old ad for our sister neighborhood, Victoria Park, who is also located along the same ridge-line, which was a big selling point before air-conditioning.
Several of our residents in Oxford Square have lived in the neighborhood since the 1950s & 60s. Many of our homes have been passed down from generation to generation, from parents to children, who now reside with their own families. We are a tightly-knit community of about 200 houses, a majority of which have been faithfully restored. We are proud that our neighborhood remains friendly, close, and exceptionally diverse. We have very old and very young people, families and singles, kids/no kids, straight and gay, and close to even proportions of African American, Latino, Asian (Korean and Japanese) and Caucasian residents. The vibe is very much "live and let live".
The Oxford Square Neighborhood Association was founded in 2007 by a group of passionate newcomers and longtime residents. "Oxford Square" is the name of the original tract, including Windsor Blvd, Victoria Ave, and Plymouth running north & south between Pico and Wilshire. Serving as a central and connecting thread between Windsor and Victoria is 12th Street which unifies the two streets. North of Olympic is Windsor Village and the neighborhood to the west is known as Queen Anne.
