- 05/14/2013 Natalie I have tried to contact you about this issue of land. We have been passed by the parks commissioners and have 1.06 acres of land. I am not sure what you need? Please contact the Director of Parks and Recreation George Chapjian at 562-570-3170. He will be sending a letter shortly. We also have an official address 7650 Spring Street Long Beach, Calif. It not the land that has been an issue it has been the financing from the City.

- Mary Matthiensen 05/08/2013 This is so true Pam. The Parks and Recreation want to move it to the North side of Spring for more visibility, which we agree for Corporate. So we not only have one location but two! So let get everyone voting, we have the supporters to do this!
- Pamela Richards 05/08/2013 I came home from LB Community Hospital in 1960 to Eldorado Park South and have never left. I remember no golf course, no BB fields, no nature center, no Pitchford Facility, ect. But... What I remember most is fighting for all of these gifts for our city. The Eldorado area of Long Beach needs a dog park. We have the land needed we just need to get this help to complete this mission. We need to win this contest. Let's do this!!! LET YOUR VOTE COUNT!!!
