  • Went with some friends who are locals and found this hilltop park to be enchanting. The night time views towards downtown Long Beach and the port were spectacular! This is a spot mostly locals know ab...  read more »
  • Always love walking the dog around Hilltop Park. On a clear day, you have great views of downtown LA, Hollywood sign, Catalina. 
  • Hilltop Park had phenomenal views of the city and ocean as well as great sunset views. There are several walking paths as well as hills to enjoy. 
  • This is such a beautiful spot. You are over looking all of Long Beach and can see the ocean in the distance. There is a nice little park across the street to walk your dogs. On the other side of the hill is a nice trail and you can see the Long Beach airport. Kind of cool you can see plans take off and land. Great spot for afternoon walk or sunset.
  • I love this park. Yeah, a downside is no playground for the kids, but that's fine considering epic views and nice open grass space for picnicking and kicking a ball around. The views from here are spectacular! You can see all of Long Beach, Long Beach harbor, Los Angeles harbor, even San Pedro. You can see Palos Verdes, and even make out downtown LA on a clear day! Seal Beach is also in view of you cross the street toward the ocean. We like to come here and use the panorama promenade, which is at the end of Dawson Ave. It's a nice large walkway going around the North side of Signal Hill. We like to wrap around and take Skyline back to the park. It's a nice stretch, giving you bonus views of Long Beach airport and the mountains in the far background. If you take Skyline back, and you care about some small town history, take a side trip to Sunset View Park. There are some plaques that give the history of some radio towers in the area. Going a little further you'll find the oil drilling monument which makes for a nice photo spot. The round trip can fill up about an hour, more if you take your time. Yes, there are restrooms here, not super nice but hey, it's a public park.
  • I think this is a wonderful and romantic spot. My fiancĂ© and I discovered it one day by taking a new route to work. We've come here a few times now for the view and to sit and relax and write.
  • Awesome location, in a clear day you can see from hutington beach all the way to the Hollywood sign, also at nigth the view of the city is spectacular but on the down side there are not much parking space and they close at 10, over all this is a great destination for the family or if you want to bring a date
  • Definitely one of the best central views of Long Beach. On a clear day you can easily see Huntington, Catalina, San Pedro.. and all the way up to Downtown LA. Go after it rains and you will be AMAZED.
