Glen Park is primarily based on MacArthur Park and Echo Park in Los Angeles. The district is quite affluent and middle-class, even though there is severe problems with gangs and drug trafficking. It consists of many bungalows, apartments, a public park with surrounding palm trees, a large pond in the centre, and an overpass bridge. The nearby County General Hospital can also be found despite being located in the official zone of Jefferson.
Glen Park is controlled by the Ballas in the early part of 1992, and is close to other Ballas controlled districts, namely Jefferson and Idlewood. It is later controlled by the Grove Street Families. Besides the two aforementioned districts, nearby areas include Downtown Los Santos, the Mulholland Intersection and the Los Santos Vagos-controlled Las Colinas. There are two known residents: Mark "B Dup" Wayne and Barry "Big Bear" Thorne, who moved to Glen Park from Ganton. Little Weasel, a Ballas member, also lived in Glen Park. The area has a diverse multicultural population.
Events of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
Glen Park in the early part of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is controlled by the Kilo Tray Ballas, although they eventually lose the area to the Grove Street Families (during the mission Doberman). However, the district falls back into the hands of the Ballas, when Carl Johnson and Sean "Sweet" Johnson lose influence over the Grove Street Families. Upon Sweet Johnson's parole, the GSF retake Glen Park during a turf war in a later mission.
