For the street, see Strawberry Avenue.

Strawberry is a mixed commercial and residential neighborhood in South Los Santos, San Andreas in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


It is bordered by Davis to the south, Chamberlain Hills and La Puerta to the southwest, Rancho to the southeast, Pillbox Hill and Little Seoul to the northwest, and Mission Row to the northeast.


The neighborhood is a working-class industrial and partly working-class residential with the majority of the population being African-American. Southern Strawberry, and especially Forum Drive and Strawberry Avenue, are known for their high crime rate and gang violence between the Ballas and the Families. The northern part of the neighborhood is less run-down because of its proximity to Downtown Los Santos. It was first referenced in a still advertising Los Santos Customs as the hometown of Robert in a testimonial. The Families gang is mostly located on the west side of Strawberry in the projects located on Forum Drive. The neighborhood has few residences, being one of the lowest populated areas in the city.

Events of Grand Theft Auto V

Strawberry is the neighborhood that the player is first introduced to as Franklin, as his aunt's house is located in the area. Various missions during the beginning of the game are started in Strawberry.


The neighborhood is based on the Crenshaw District of South Central Los Angeles, though the neighborhood also takes some inspiration from Inglewood, CA.

Gang Control

Strawberry is controlled by The Families. Members of the gang can be located anywhere throughout Strawberry, and in multiple parts of Davis. Gang members can be seen hanging out outside the projects on Forum Drive, the recreation center on Carson Ave, and along Strawberry Ave and McDonald Street. In The Underbelly Of Paradise, it is said that the Ballas have some turf here, although they are not programmed to spawn there.

Notable Residents


The Los Santos Transit has a stop below the Olympic Freeway. La Puerta Freeway and Olympic Freeway both have highway exits going to Strawberry.
