Lakewood Plaza or “the Plaza” as its often referred to, is actually a neighborhood of Long Beach, located adjacent to El Dorado Park West. The neighborhood is filled with tree-lined streets, dog walkers and families and occupies a half-mile square area bounded by Spring St. to the north, Studebaker on the east , Stearns to the south, and Palo Verde Ave on the west.
The Plaza was originally built in several phases as part of the Lakewood, California subdivision Lakewood Plaza. In 1953, residents in Lakewood Plaza units 3, 4 and 5 voted to become the first Lakewood area choosing to be annexed into Long Beach.
The homes in this area are bungalow and ranch style one level homes that were built in the mid 1950′s. Lakewood Plaza homes are not under any homeowners association and enjoy a central location in Long Beach. These homes typically sell very quickly due to the low prices for a residential single family home. This is a great area near local churches, excellent schools, the Long Beach airport and Long Beach City College.
