Buena Park. CA , is now my home.
Known as the "Center of the Southland,"
Located in the Great OC (Orange County)
I grew up just a mile away in La Palma
Buena Park is known internationally largely because of Knott's Berry Farm, which began in 1920 by Walter Knott and his family. America’s first Amusement Park. And some of the best jelly, and famous fried chicken.
Located on and around Beach Boulevard south of the 91 Freeway the E-Zone is home to Knott's Berry Farm, Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament, Knott's Soak City U.S.A. and the swashbuckling Pirates Dinner Adventure.
