This is a lawn and exercise park, not really a sports park but there is plenty of space to create a field. There's a small playground area and skate place. Nice views of the beach and water near Ocean Ave. And you can walk from Bixby via connected parkland along the beach. Interestingly, some of the older trees here were... More

Nice park with updated work out sections all around it. Has a skateboard area and hosts the farmers market every Tuesday and Saturday. Less functional at night with the increased homeless population that has migrated from the city hall area but still fairly safe.

From Lola's Mexican on the west to Aji on the east end, this section of 4th Street is vibrant with an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants. Long Beach managed a revival of the area without bringing in any chain stores, so all of the shopping and eating options are unique and full of character. There's excellent "new to you"... More

Attractive park within the city. This is a favored spot for locals. I saw a number of walkers and people playing impromptu sports. Very green. Nice landscaping

Friends took us to Bixby Park the first time and we continue to enjoy going there, especially for the late day Farmer's Market on Tuesday. Great selection of farm fresh produce and Cali-centric products. Nice lawn, super views of the harbor, Queen Mary and Catalina, fog permitting. Picnic too! ...

When we go here it is usually to visit the Farmers Market to buy fresh foods and some of their prepared foods.

It is small, it is quaint, there is not much to do or see, but it is a nice little strip of green space with a playground, bbqs, skate site, and exercise space.
