Los Altos also is known for its family oriented atmosphere. People outside are often found to be taking family bike rides and walks under the heavily shaded streets. In November of 2018 a new state of the art park featuring an art and music theme was constructed at Whaley Park in Los Altos. The park was built with infrastructure funds from Measure A tax dollars which Long Beach voters passed in 2016. There are two freeways (the 405 and 605) within a short drive, providing easy travel to distant locations. Long Beach Airport is nearby.

Its borders meet with Whaley Park and the Traffic Circle area on the west, El Dorado South on the east, East/Eastside Long Beach on the north, and Park Estates and CSU Long Beach on the south.
