Baldwin Park, is located in Southern California, in Los Angeles County. It is in the Central San Gabriel Valley. According to the 2022, U.S. Census Bureau, the estimated population is 69,445.

Baldwin Park was settled in the late 1800s, and was known as Vineland. It changed its name in 1906, to Baldwin Park after a wealthy pioneer and real estate investor Elias J. Baldwin (1875-1909), who apparently owned or claimed more than 40,000 miles of Los Angeles County.
In the 1920s, there was a housing boon in Baldwin Hills. The new homes offered views of Los Angeles and the South Bay.

The dam collapse was captured live on television by a KTLA helicopter crew. However, Baldwin Hills quickly rebounded and rebuilt their homes.
