    Enjoy L.B. away from beach: El Dorado Park

    by marinarena Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The good thing about big cities is that they have an official big natural park setting for the public. Park features usually include sporting facilities, bird watching and a man-lake with duckies. El Dorado in L.B. is no exception with the duckies and all...but it is special with many other amenities.

    Park Features (Eastpark, 7550 E. Spring St
    570-1771) :

    Archery range

    First come, first served BBQ grills

    4 miles of bicycle trails

    Campground

    Fishing lakes

    Glider flying area and model sailboat area (radio controlled)

    Nature Center - Closed Mondays!

    Entry (with car) is $3 at park. See website for many more details!

    Bluff Park

    by american_tourister Written Aug 25, 2002

    Bluff Park. This is a 1 1/2 mile long park that runs along the shore between the downtown and Belmont Shore areas. It is long and narrow but has wonderful views of the Pacific Ocean and is very Romantic. There are usually people out every afternoon with remote control gliders. They take advantage of the sea breeze careening off the bluff and fly their gliders for hours.

    Don't jump the rails!

    Bixby Park

    Bixby Park. Long Beach has a very large number and variety of parks. They are well kept and well used. This one is packed every weekend but the view of the Pacific Ocean makes up for the crowding. My dog Bosco loves it too. Here he is taking a break after a 2 mile run.

    That's a good dog!

    Fishing Piers at Pierpoint Landing. They are never crowded like the big piers and have great views. That is the Queen Mary across from this one.

    Right off the bike path too.
