Heads Up!
This place is still active according to an article on the front page of today's LA Times on growing concerns the public at large has with the few large police agencies targeting gay public sex.

The City of Long Beach has since decided not to appeal the court ruling on this case that sting operations unfairly target gay men. However, the city is developing a new policy on how to enforce lewd conduct laws.

"[Long Beach Mayor Robert] Garcia did not offer specifics about how the department might police lewd conduct in the future, but promised the department would strike a balance between enforcing the law and respecting the LGBT community.

"There will be incidents in the future where police officers will have to make an arrest if something is occurring, if something bad is happening in a restroom, regardless of this issue,” he said. “So we want to make sure that, if and when that happens, it's being done in a way that's appropriate and that's fair and our cops have all the tools they need to both enforce the law and implement best practices."

This is a developing story. When time allows, I hope to update the Cruising 101 page about public cruising as well as the Legal Q & A: About Public Sex written years ago by Keith, the late founder of this site. Clearly much has changed both legally and socially.

As always, those who cruise in public places should take care.~ Editor

P.S. Delayed update, Nov 2016: The City of Long Beach chose not to appeal a Superior Court ruling that police stings there unfairly targeted gay men. There is also a Federal class-action lawsuit pending against the City.

I saw police arrest someone this week. The cop was wearing a t-shirt and driving a blue truck.

LBPD vice cops are always busting people here. Be careful.

This can be very cruisy but be careful. Undercover cops have been known to stop by and hang out probably because of the high school next door.

Eh. This is a hit-or-miss kind of place. Weekends often find the park full of Latin, Asian and black families -- heavy on Latin. The dog park area may not have cruisy sex but you can often find a gay boy with his 'kid' (dog) in the area and maybe can hookup.

This used to be a very busy bathroom with a lot of hot guys. That has changed since they beefed up police patrols by one hundred percent. The police never touched the place, but now they patrol a lot, so beware. Also, there are mostly older, unattractive guys. If you dare to go at all, it's best when there are a lot of people there. If it's deserted, you need to watch out.


Posted Mar 25 2005:
The bathrooms close around 7 pm. I got arrested here a few years ago. Just be careful.


Posted Feb 10 2005:
There are four stalls without doors. Guys often sit in the last two stalls. I have had lots of hot action here. Guys are in and out looking to get sucked off.


Posted Jan 08 2005:
This restroom is nasty (not in a good way). The patrons are usually old and ugly. Whomever said CSULB boys hang out here is just saying that in hopes that some hot boys will read and start visiting. Skip this toilet. The crowd is disgusting.


Posted Jan 07 2005:
This is a great spot. I have been cumming here for years!

This is a great place for blowjobs. There are lots of young Cal State students here.
