Lagenbeck Park


Langenbeck Park is a runner's paradise. There's a paved path that stretches  the length of a park, scattered with picnic tables on green lawns.

Langenbeck Park
Garfield Avenue and Magnolia Street
Huntington Beach, CA

Langenbeck Park is an L-shaped greenbelt that sits under the right of way for power lines. Accessible from either Garfield Avenue or Magnolia Street, it contains a cement sidewalk that stretches the distance of the park, over half a mile from one end to the other. Runners pass by but don't normally stay and sit under the shade trees for picnics.  The park's most popular activities include jogging, bicycling and walking along the paved causeway. Curbside parking is available.

Situated in a pride-of-ownership neighborhood with well kept houses, Langenbeck Park is named for Vernon E. Langenbeck who served as mayor of Huntington Beach from 1950 to 1952. Directly across the street from the park on Magnolia Street is another public park, Talbert Park.

Huntington Beach Parks

The City of Huntington Beach (California) is the caretaker and steward of the Huntington Beach public park system. Two departments involved with Huntington Beach parks are the Community Services Department and Park Maintenance. Park Maintenance is responsible for maintaining approximately 67 parks and public facilities, totaling 598 acres, 169 playground apparatus and irrigation systems. 

Park Maintenance is also an integral component in special events in the City, closely working with Community Services to set up for events and activities that take place on or near park facilities. Community Services not only handles the rental of the park facilities but also operates programs for the public that include softball leagues, exercise classes, cooking, dancing and other types of interesting and fun things to do. For more information on park maintenance call (714) 536-5480.  For information on park facilities or to make a reservation call Community Services at (714) 536-5486 or the phone numbers provided on the featured parks pages.
