Many people drive  through the Lakewood Village neighborhood without ever knowing they’ve done so since major streets form its boundaries and Clark Avenue runs through the middle of it.

Yet if you’re seeking a neighborhood of mostly low-traffic streets and custom homes that’s convenient to good schools, shopping, and restaurants, you may want to check out the neighborhood.

Lakewood Village sits in the northeast part of Long Beach, surrounded on the north, west and east sides by the city of Lakewood. The boundaries are Del Amo on the north, Carson on the south, Lakewood Boulevard on the West and Bellflower Boulevard on the east.

Schools in Lakewood Village

One thing that draws people to the neighborhood is the schools. Award-winning Mark Twain Elementary School lies at the corner of Centralia and Clark, with Bancroft Middle School just across the street. Lakewood High School lies just east of the neighborhood and Long Beach City College‘s Liberal Arts campus sits on the southern end of the neighborhood. Additionally, several local churches have elementary schools.
