The homes in Carroll Park range from large to small.  Many of them, like this bungalow style home, have been carefully restored in recent years.

John Carroll, the developer who founded the Carroll Park neighborhood in the early 1900s, laid out the streets in a curving, almost circular pattern to stop farmers from driving their loaded farm wagons through this residential neighborhood on their way to the market in downtown Long Beach -- or so the story goes. 

  In another explanation of the curving, winding street plan, the story is that Carroll, who had lived in Shanghai for years, drew on Chinese philosophy for the pattern.  

Whatever the truth, today's Carroll Park residents enjoy winding, tree-lined streets with little traffic through this neighborhood.

carroll park long beach Yes, there is a park in Carroll Park, but it is not at the center of this quiet neighborhood. 

John Carroll designed the central circle for homes and placed the parks-- and originally there were 4 of them -- at the corners of this neighborhood.

Carroll Park is close to Rose Park and Belmont Heights neighborhoods.  It is within easy walking distance of the beach.
