The Many Joys of El Dorado Park in Long Beach

If you live in the Long Beach area, you have most likely heard of El Dorado Park. And if you haven’t already visited, you’ve likely at least driven by. However, there is much more to the park than meets the eye. The park consists of El Dorado East Regional Park, the El Dorado Nature Center, and El Dorado Park West. Within these three areas there is plenty to explore.

El Dorado Park

Located at 2800 Studebacker Road, El Dorado Park West covers 272.5 acres and is the place to go to play sports.  Along with an 18-hole golf course, the park has a community center, night lighted basketball and volleyball courts, baseball and soccer fields, a skate park, a disk golf course, and six group picnic sites. The park is also the site of the El Dorado Park Tennis Center.

The golf course has a restaurant and is available to rent for events and weddings. In addition to a large multi-purpose room, the community center includes a teen wing and a senior center. The senior center was added in 2002 and hosts daily events and classes such as ballroom dancing and a senior fitness class. Like the golf course, the community center can be rented for private events.

Throughout the park is a paved 4 mile bike path and a physical fitness course. If relaxing with a picnic is more your style, this side of the park has plenty of picnic shelters, tables, barbecue grills, and peaceful places to lay down a picnic blanket.
