I adore Mother's Beach! My 3 and 5 year old boys love to swim in the flat, protected water and play on the sandy beach and playground all summer long. My favorite family beach ever! And they love the ice cream truck that hangs out in the parking lot throughout the busy hours of summer too. :)

We visited Mother's Beach while visiting CA in April 2016. Street parking and free space on the sand were very easy to find on a weekday when school was in session, and while our son who loves the sensation of trying to "jump" waves was a bit disappointed by the still waters of the protected waterway, it was easy to...

Brought four kids here, ages 7 - 13, and everyone had a great time. Besides the water fun (calmer than the ocean so more worry free), there is a playground, concessions, bathrooms and outdoor showers to get the sand off!! Get there before 10 am for a spot in the parking lot. Metered parking is only $1 an hour!

The location of this part is nice...yet there is no parking. So be prepared to park on very narrow residential streets and walk! If there is an event, you will walk a very long way. The venue has only porta potties, so be prepared.

Took my four kids here to play for a day and left disappointed. Not much as far as play equipment goes for 2 year olds. We went on a Saturday and it was super packed. Seems like there are a lot of nice parks around Long Beach to choose from I'm not sure why this one is so highly recommended... More

A nice small beach that is a favorite of mothers with small children. The inlet has no waves or currents and no drop offs in the water. You can relax with small children and it is easy to keep an eye on them. It is a nice crowd of people that go there.

Great family beach and park. Great for picnics on the grass under shady trees. Designated swim area with very little waves and lifeguards in summer. Restrooms, showers,street and metered parking. Movies on the beach in summer.
