Carson Park Homes
Carson Park is an area of northeast Long Beach and Lakewood built in 1952-1953. There were originally about 5 main floor plans for these single story homes built on raised foundations with hardwood floors. Original floor plans consisted of 2 or 3 bedroom homes, with 1 bath and a two-car garage. This area is known as Carson Park Long Beach (there is also a Carson Park-Lakewood just north of this). Some houses were also built in what is still an unincorporated area of Los Angeles County that lies within this area of Long Beach. The homes began to expand to two-story homes several years ago, and are now more common, as owners want the same location but a larger home with a family room and more bedrooms.
