The next California Gardens tour is scheduled for Saturday, October 15th, 10am-12pm

The next California Gardens tour is scheduled for Saturday, October 15th, 10am-12pm. The tour will be the kick-off to monthly California Gardens Tours to be held every 3rd Saturday of the Month. These tours will be led by volunteers, and each tour will focus on a different aspect of the property (history, wildlife, plants, developments, etc). If you are interested in leading an upcoming tour, please email Grace Lorentzen at

This month's tour will be led by:
-Grace Lorentzen, 7th District Resident
-Mary Parsell, El Dorado Audubon Society

Plenty of parking and meeting location will be in the lot along Orange Ave., just south of 28th St (between Spring St. and Willow St.).

"The need for recreation opportunities and open space continues to grow in northern, central, and western portions of Long Beach," said Councilmember Johnson. "California Gardens is an opportunity to develop 40 acres of City-owned land into a natural oasis the whole region can enjoy. The proposed park at California Gardens is located at the highest accessible point in Long Beach, offering a 270-degree view of the Pacific Ocean to Palos Verdes to the mountains and Downtown Lost Angeles. After more than 100 years of City ownership, the time has come to start opening this property to the public to enjoy this natural open space in the middle of our city."

The monthly tours are open to the public and are are free of charge.  Contact the 7th District office if you have any questions: (562) 570-7777 or
