The Eastside of Long Beach is a place to get in touch with your mind intellectually and spiritually.

Home to California State University Long Beach and Long Beach City College, the Eastside of the city is where natives and transplants can engage in their educational pursuits. 

Beyond the bounds of our campuses, the Eastside is home to a number of parks and recreational areas where residents and visitors can unwind. Two parks in the area, Stearns Park, and El Dorado Regional Park encompass more than 500 areas of recreational activities for everyone to enjoy. The El Dorado Nature Center offers a nature center and a 2-mile loop trail in its mini-wilderness. The Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden on the campus of Cal State Long Beach is an oasis of beauty and tranquility.
