Nice Walk
Jun 2021 • Couples
Our neighbors with a park seasonal pass invited me to a morning hike at the El Dorado Park, located practically alongside the 605 freeway with traffic zooming by. It felt like stepping into another world past the entrance to this sanctuary. The calming, serene environment was a welcoming break from the city bustle and humdrum routine. How wonderful to have a nature park within minutes from our home. Our leisurely walk along the easy 2-mile trek on this beautiful morning with clear blue sky truly showcased Southern Californian living with its great weather and easy access to a wide multitude of outdoor activities.

Great Place to Leave the Modern World
Jul 2020
The El Dorado Nature Center is a great place to just come out, enjoy what nature has to offer. You have the option to do a 1 mile trail or 2 mile trail. Not that many switchbacks, the trails are for the most part flat with a few up hills but nothing drastic. For the time that you are out there, you may forget that you are in an urban City. Nature is all around you, lakes, streams, a great place for taking pictures of nature, or just to admire. Having a rough day or just a need a day out, take a couple of hours and just take a hike....

A quiet and serene getaway
Nov 2019
A quiet and serene getaway in the middle of a busy urban area. L.A. is full of surprises, but this quiet park is truly one of the hidden gems. Only reachable by car and you have to pay for parking, but the entry is free. The center is beautiful with abundant wildlife (birds, turtles, etc.), 2 lakes and an abundance of trees and hiking paths. Plan to spend at least a couple of hours.
If you are in the area and miss nature, this is a must do.

A real feeling of nature right in town
Feb 2020
We had been in the huge El Dorado Park and thought we'd check out the nature center for a walk. It's great! The trails are easy and scenic going around two small lakes and through a small forest. Though there were plenty of people there, it certainly didn't seem crowded. We even saw a coyote! We will definitely go back.

relaxing trail right near your home
Jan 2020
This is a somewhat unknown treasure in Long Beach. It's kid of tucked away and you could drive right by it and not even know it was there. It's a very relaxing nature trail with various tress, plants, ponds and all kinds of birds. Around 2 miles in lenght, so you can easily walk it,but take your time and enjoy the surroundings!!

When you are looking for that place to escape away to.
Jun 2019
The Nature Center is a great spot to visit when you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Located in Long Beach you will think that you have left the city but you are actually only 10 mins away from Downtown Long Beach. There is some wildlife like wetland birds which if you pay attention when driving near the center you may notice them flying over the freeways.

Nature so close to home
Nov 2019
Unless you've been here, who knew this amazing piece of nature is located in Long Beach. The nature center has two miles of paths and a 1/4 path for the handicapped. This is a great time of year to see white heron's, geese, ducks and an occasional cottontail rabbit. The foliage is also changing this time of year, the weather is cooler and you feel transported to another place. As John Muir says, "Come to the woods, for here is rest." A great way to start your day, letting nature surround you.

pleasant walk about in nature
Oct 2019
Nice trails around ponds and through nature. If you enjoy turtles sunning in the pond or seeing an Osprey in the trees, you will enjoy this nature center. There are 1 or 2 mile trail options, or do as much as you like, very versatile.
