Bluff Park is the location of the Long Beach Museum of Art, as well as many older, well-maintained homes. There is also a Buddhist monastery that once was a Roman Catholic convent.

Bluff Park is a 25.8 acres (104,000 m2) park located between Ocean Blvd. and a tall bluff above the large sandy beach in the area. It is frequented by joggers, strollers, and dog walkers. Hobbyists with radio-controlled gliders like to use the natural updrafts of the bluff for their model planes. There is a replica of the Lone Sailor Statue in the park in honor of Long Beach's Naval heritage.[1]
