Last month, on September 28th, the City hosted the 2nd Annual Ranchos Walk in partnership with Walk Long Beach, Rancho Los Cerritos, and Rancho Los Alamitos. Nearly 400 people participated in the walk from Rancho Los Alamitos to Rancho Los Cerritos which ended in a celebration for Rancho Los Cerritos’ 175th anniversary.
“We hope residents and visitors will learn more about their city and its topography and history through participating in the Ranchos Walk,” said Larry Rich, Long Beach’s Sustainability Coordinator. “Helping to foster a sense of place for participants can lead to better stewardship of the places we live, work, and play.”
Rancho Los Alamitos helped welcome guests at CSULB with information and a photo op. The finish festival at Rancho Los Cerritos celebrating the Rancho’s 175th anniversary featured live music from the Long Beach Poly High School Jazz Combo and The Bernie Pearl Blues Band, kids’ activities, a “Brewery Knolls” beer garden featuring Liberation Brewing Co., food vendors, a 175th birthday cake-cutting ceremony and self-guided tours of the historic adobe building.
Look out for news of next year’s Ranchos Walk in September 2020. More information will be posted at
