Historic Bluff Park, one of Long Beach's most affluent neighborhoods, is situated on a prominent bluff above the ocean. This tiny area is only 3 blocks wide, bordered by the ocean to the south and Broadway to the north, and is anchored on the west by the Long Beach Museum of Art. The museum is a 1912 Craftsman mansion, which was built as a summer home for Elizabeth Milbank Anderson, an heiress to the Borden Company.
Bluff Park got its name with the creation of this beautiful park overlooking the ocean. It is a wonderful place to relax, take in the views, people watch or step down to the sandy beach with its jogging and bike paths.
There is a wide variety of architectural styles, including Green and Green, Craftsman, California Bungalow, Spanish Revival and Mediterranean estates built between 1903 and 1949. In fact, the State Historic Resources Inventory has identified 65 of these homes as significant examples of styles of their era. Along with the uniqueness of these estates, the beautiful landscaping greatly contributes to the charm and character of the area. There are no businesses, churches, or public buildings in this historic district. You typically won't see many homes for sale on these streets. Residents love this area and don't want to move.
Come take a stroll down the wide tree lined boulevards, feel the ocean breezes and enjoy the beauty and history. It is a really a treat!
