  • El Dorado Nature Center is a great place to get out into nature without driving hours to get out if the urban center. Located off of Interstate Route 605 off of Spring Street in the City of Long Beach...  read more »
  • I took my boys to the nature park ...I watched this park being built...great still I love long beach parks we are very lucky. 
  • An oasis in a big city. I go for exercise, nature views, and for relaxation. Also can see wild animals and migrating birds in a beautiful natural setting. 
  • El Dorado NC was a great place to do some walking in nature. We were able to see a lot of great things, like turtles, birds, egrets, rabbits, etc. Easy stroll in a great setting.
  • The parking cost varies depending on the day (weekend, Holiday...), but the year pass is well worth it if you like to walk. If you are 50+ I think it is $35. It really feels like you are in a forest. They hide civilization pretty well with few exceptions.
  • Nice place to bring family and children. Too bad theres no picnics and it closes very early.
  • Loved this place, back when I lived in Southern California... Use to visit it all the time.
  • I love this park! Great park to walk with you family🤗🌴
