Adjoining just northbound of Duarte is the more affluent city of Bradbury, Ca. Bradbury uses the same school district and municipal services as Duarte. With a population of approximately 1000 people, Bradbury is a much smaller city primarily consisting of equestrian estates located within gated communities. Two thirds of the homes in Bradbury are located within two gated communities, Bradbury Estates and Woodlyn Lane. The remaining third of the city is made up of lots that range in size from 7,500 square feet to one acre.
With no apartment buildings, condos, or commercial developments within the city, Bradbury truly is a rural retreat.
