Inglewood is a city in southwestern Los Angeles County, California, southwest of downtown Los Angeles. The city has a culturally diverse a population of over 110,000. The city is in the South Bay region of Los Angeles County.
During the 1960s and ’70s, Inglewood continued to grow and develop, taking on a “metropolitan” look. The City became racially integrated in both its residential and business communities; it was now the home of two major hospitals – Cantilena and Daniel Freeman; the “City of Champions” was now the site of Hollywood Park Racetrack, recently celebrating 50 years of championship horse racing, and the Forum, constructed in the late ’60s to become the home of the World Champion Lakers basketball team and the Kings hockey team, as well as featuring World Class Tennis played by the Strings, plus championship boxing.
The City’s reputation and its accessibility to major freeways and Los Angeles International Airport made it an attractive business investment and an ideal location for the rapidly expanding air freight business. Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park is currently under construction in the city and when completed around 2020 will be the new home of both the National Football League’s Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers.
