Hi Bill. What you describe is called moving to the nuisance and it's always been a problem. I used to live near a small municipal airport that was there before all the houses around were built, but people still complained about the little airport although they knew that it was there when they built or bought their homes nearby. The same is true for shooting ranges.

I am not sure if I understand what you mean by "detour." I am assuming you are suggesting that agents try to keep their clients out of those areas and don't show properties there or are you just talking about going around the area on the days the events take place?

As an agent, I don't decide where a client will buy a house. However, it is my job to make sure the client receives all the necessary information to make an informed decision. Disclosing known nuisances would be part of that. Once the client knows about the nuisance and decides to move in the area anyway, agents will do nothing to "detour" the sale.

The dog beach zone in Long Beach permits off-leash beach access for dogs and their owners in a 3-acre area, daily from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. The Dog Zone is at 4800 E. Ocean Blvd., between Roycroft and Argonne avenues at the water in Belmont Shore, 90803. The law is one dog per adult.
There is also a dog park at Recreation Park at 7th Street and Park.
Or if your doggie would like a change of scenery you can head over to Huntington Beach Dog Beach which is located on Pacific Coast Highway between 21st St. and Seapoint St.

You can windsurf in any of our canals or out in the ocean. It just depends on what you are comfortable with. You can pick up a lot of wind in your sail on some of our larger canals.

Long Beach has one of the best parks and recreation systems in the entire country! It was voted the number 1 agency in the country in 1996. Whether you enjoy water sports, like you can enjoy at Marine Stadium, or you want to relax at a Park, like El Dorado park, you can find it here. Long Beach has a number of golf courses as well. The municipal courses are well taken care of and there are executive courses as well. Tee times are generally easy to get and if you are a Long Beach resident then you get a discount and advanced scheduling. There are a number of dog friendly parks from close to the Ocean, like Bluff Park, to other parks like close to the golf courses. ... more
