Discover Lakewood Village

Lakewood Village

Many people drive through the Lakewood Village neighborhood without ever knowing they’ve done so! Clark Avenue runs right through the middle of it so it’s easy for this neighborhood to get lost in the shuffle. Yet, if you’re seeking a neighborhood with 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. or The Village, sits in the northeast part of Long Beach. A common misconception is that this neighborhood is located in Lakewood because of its name. However, it is simply 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.

    Worst air quality in the nation to go with your million dollar make believe American dream home and of course the worst traffic on the planet. Only nice thing about it is it deters people from wanting to move here in the first place
