Garden Grove is a primarily residential city located in Central Orange County. It is one of older cities in Orange being incorporated in 1956. The population is approximately 170,000 and a high percentage of those are Vietnamese Americans. Combined with neighboring Westminster, the two cities make up the largest Vietnamese population outside of Vietnam.
The real estate in Garden Grove is primarily a collection of single family tract homes built in the 1950's and 1960's. There are a limited number of condo developments in the city. There has been some redevelopment over the years, both with many homes being totally redone as new and there have been a few small new home developments.
