Hancock Park was developed in the 1920s by the Hancock family with profits earned from oil drilling in the former Rancho La Brea. The area owes its name to developer-philanthropist George Allan Hancock, who subdivided the property in the 1920s. The Hancock Park development started on Rossmore and moved west to Highland in 1921.

Hancock subdivided the property from Rossmore to Highland avenues between Wilshire Blvd and Melrose Ave into residential lots. He leased 105 acres to the Wilshire Country Club with an option to buy. Hancock also insisted that his master plan include concrete streets and the location of utility lines at the rear of each development, out of sight of homeowners. Another condition was that homeowners build no less than 50 feet from the curb.

A 23-acre site where the Hancock family home stood was donated to the County in 1923 and is called Hancock County Park. This land is also now the site of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Page Museum.

Hancock Park is located within the 90004, 90020, 90010 and 90036 zip codes and is bordered by Miracle Mile & West Hollywood to the west, Hollywood to the north, Windsor Square and Larchmont Village to the east and Greater Wilshire to the south.
