Colorado Lagoon Park - Long Beach California


I remember when I first moved into Long Beach and drove past Colorado Lagoon.  In my own New York way I asked my friend; Whats with the swamp?.  It was looking pretty raggy way back then, but as they say, its come a long way baby! Yesterday I was driving by, it was such a pretty day and the park was so peaceful, I pulled over and took a few pictures.

Drop in at the Education Center from 2 to 5 and discover the featured creature of the day. Then go out and see if you can find where it lives, what it eats, and who it eats. The Education Center is located on Appian Way, between Park & Colorado 562-570-1749.

If you are heading to the Lagoon, pack a picnic lunch and enjoy it in the picnic area. Live in the area?  Push off your kayak for a nice tour of the local canals. 


Weekends the Lagoon is very busy.  Many people come to enjoy the park.  Unfortunately they dont have the love and leave a lot of litter behind.  Please dispose of your trash in the provided recepticals and help us keep our city clean for your next visit. 

No Littering

The park provides a designated swimming area. 

I wouldnt go in that water.  Nuff said?

The City of Long Beach has put forth major Restoration Efforts and has made Colorado Lagoon a into a beautiful and inviting park area and beach once again.  Ok, so its still a bit of a work in progress, but it sure is getting prettier.  Maybe someday that water will be clean enough to actually swim in¦

2/6/2010 UPDATE:  LA Times reports that the City of Long Beach will launch the first phase of a $15 million project to remove contamination, divert trash and carve out an open channel to the ocean.  The project is being paid for with federal stimulus funds and by the Port of Long Beach who advanced $1.3 million and paid for environmental and engineering studies.
