Buena Park first became known as a dairy center, and both the Sante Fe and Southern Pacific railroads built depots. The Lily Creamery started operations in Buena Park in 1889. With the exception of a few wineries, the creamery was the first industry in the city.
Today, the City's main claim to fame is as the home of the popular E-Zone or Entertainment Zone.
Located on and around Beach Boulevard south of the 91 Freeway the E-Zone is home to such exciting attractions as Knott's Berry Farm, Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament, Knott's Soak City U.S.A . and the swashbuckling Pirate's Dinner Adventure.
