Many of my clients have been particularly interested in the secure environment provided within a Gated Community. In Cerritos, there are a couple of gated communities to choose from...
166th & Shoemaker
The ENCORE gated community in Cerritos is an intimate home community located directly next to Whitney High School. ENCORE is a great location if your kids aspire to become Whitney Wildcats. The streets are named after famous classical composers such as Bach, Beethoven & Mozart. There is an entrance/exit on 166th street secured by a machine terminal. There is also an exit located on Shoemaker. Love waking up early? Then find an ENCORE house closest to the campus. During the fall marching season, the Award-winning Whitney High School Marching Band practices every morning at 7am.
South & Bloomfield/Shoemaker
The SHADOW PARK gated community covers a large parcel of land with several entrances/exits, the main one being on South Street. The main entranced is always staffed with a security guard. Shadow Park consists of 394 homes and a park including a clubhouse, pool, tennis, basketball and volleyball courts, and a sand play area. There are ten models of Ponderosa and Warmington homes, with variations of each model. They range in size from approximately 1,750 to approximately 2,000 to 3,000 square feet. Fun Tip: During Halloween, this is one of the safest and most festive neighborhoods for trick-or-treating in Cerritos.

The History of Shadow Park
Shadow Park consists of 394 homes built by two builders: Ponderosa and Warmington. The eastern portion of Shadow Park is predominantly Warmington while the western portion was built by Ponderosa. Both builders paid for our entire park including the clubhouse, pool, tennis, basketball and volleyball courts, and the sand play area during the time of housing construction. There are five models of Ponderosa homes, with variations of each model. Two models are one story and three are two story. They ranged in size from approximately 1,750 to 2,570 square feet and cost from $90,000 to $145,000, depending on the model and during what phase it was built. Warmington built five models ranging in size from approximately 2,000 to 3,000 square feet. Their prices were slightly higher than the Ponderosa homes.
Original homeowners moved in from the late fall of 1977 through the summer of 1979. Each of the builders constructed their homes in a number of phases, with some homes from each builder completed at the same time. Generally speaking, residents first moved into homes in the southeast portion of Shadow Park. New owners moved into homes in the southwest area in the spring and summer of 1978. The northwest quarter of Shadow Park was occupied in the fall of 1978 and winter of 1978-79. The final original residents moved into the homes in northeast part of Shadow Park in the spring and summer of 1979.
