Part of Rancho Los Alamitos, John W. Bixby and the original park superintendent, Mr. Nessick planted trees on the site between 1886 and 1903. The original portion of the park was donated in 1903, by the Alamitos Land Company, as part of the subdivision of the Alamitos Beach Town site. It was known as Alamitos Park. After annexation to the Long Beach in 1905, the park was renamed Jotham Bixby Park in February 1907. By 1928 Bixby Park was famous for large state picnics. A great location for a special event, it is the home of Bixby Park Local Harvest Farmers' Market. We have a variety of farm fresh Certified California Grown Fruits and Vegetables, along with fresh cooked fare vendors, and a wide variety of gourmet specialty foods. Arts, crafts and jewelry from local area vendors can also be found and purchased here. Musicians from the surrounding communities will entertain you while you shop, eat, or spend the day just leisurely strolling through.
