Where is Los Altos?

Los Altos located on the east side of Long Beach. It is bounded by Clark Avenue on the west, Spring Street on the north, Palo Verde and Studebaker on the east, and Atherton on the south.

What is living in Los Altos like?

To the untrained eye, many of the neighborhoods in east Long Beach look the same. However Los Altos has been able to stand apart from the rest. This quiet, suburban-feeling neighborhood consists mainly of single-family homes. Many of these homes were built in the 1950s and 60s and are traditionally ranch-style homes. However many of these homes have gone through various remodels and additions since they were first built.

This neighborhood is known for its family-oriented atmosphere. Residents are often seen taking family bike rides, walking dogs, and conversing with each other. The heavily shaded streets give the area the peaceful, homey feel that one would find in a small town.

What about schools?

Los Altos is served by several excellent schools. There are five public schools within its boundaries; Florence Bixby Elementary, Minnie Gant Elementary, Prisk Elementary, Stanford Middle School, and Robert A.

Even Cal State Long Beach offers many attractions for people of all ages – not just those who are attending the university. The iconic symbol of CSULB, the Mike and Arlene Walter Pyramid is one of three pyramids in the US, and the only one painted bright blue. This 18-story pyramid includes several basketball and volleyball courts and is home to the school’s Division 1 teams.

Also on campus is the Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden. This 1.3 acre garden is open to the public five days a week, except when it is privately booked for weddings and other events. It features a Zen garden, tea house, and a large koi pond where you can even feed the fish.
