About Us:

El Dorado Nature Center is an oasis of natural habitat, offering visitors the chance to escape the hustle and bustle of the urban environment.

The 105 acres that make up the Nature Center grounds provide sanctuary for animals and plant life. Two miles of dirt trails and a ¼ mile paved trail wind around two lakes, a stream and forested areas.

At the entrance, cross over the wooden bridge that spans the lake and you'll find yourself on a small island that houses the Visitor Center, containing educational displays and a small gift shop offering environmentally themed books and gifts.

Such a fun place to stroll through or take a nice power walk. The trails are beautifully maintained. There are lakes, streams, lovely trees and lots of wild life. You can enjoy a short paved path or a one or two mile trail. Perfect for anyone. Children will love this place.

Great place to see a little nature in the middle of the city. Different trails for different ages and times. Paved area for strollers and wheel chairs. Fantastic for kids

Thank you Long Beach for providing this heavenly slice of nature in our city. I recommend getting a yearly pass for parking. It's much cheaper than paying each time. If you are over 50, the fee is almost half. You can purchase the parking pass in the Nature Center office. It’s not open on Mondays and closes at 5pm.

interesting Nature Reserve in the middle of a city with two Lakes. Nice walking trails and picnic areas. Spend an hour or a few hours and walk the trails. Flat walking area and handicap area also
