Thinking about creating a mural in Long Beach Parks? Here is what you need to know about proposing a mural on City park property. 

Murals help make Long Beach a more dynamic and creative city, engage people, and stimulate dialogue and exchange of ideas. They improve the visual quality, design, and experience of spaces and foster connections between artists and communities.

The Toolkit is a user-friendly roadmap to navigate this process together with Department staff. The Toolkit provides all parties involved with a clear idea of what to expect and what ensures that murals are installed in areas that are publicly accessible and visible. 

To determine that a park mural is appropriate to its site, architecture, and social context, the Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine (Department) requires that any mural proposed for park property owned by the Department be reviewed by the Long Beach Parks and Recreation Commission and approved by the Department.
