Community Development

Provide Input on New Park Design Guidelines!

Pop-Up in the Park - Stay Informed

The City of Long Beach is in the process of updating the design guidelines for Victory Park and Santa Cruz Park in Downtown Long Beach for the first time since 1989 and wants to hear from you!

The new guidelines will establish a design vision for both parks and aim to ensure that future park improvements create an inviting public space that is attractive, sustainable, and serves as a rich amenity for those who live, work or visit Downtown.

Join us for an interactive outdoor community event to learn about the guidelines, the history of the parks and for the opportunity to provide feedback on the draft guidelines.
