bruces beachIn the 1920’s, Bruce’s Beach was a small stretch of beach which was the first Black owned and operated resort where African-Americans were welcome. It was later seized via eminent domain and dedicated and renamed for the original owners, The Bruce’s, in 2006.

Bruce’s Beach is now the oldest park in the city with amazing sweeping sunset and ocean views and shady hills. There is a half basketball court and park benches. There is an on-leash area for dogs as well.

Bruce’s Beach is located at Highland and 27th Street. For more info click here and for more history click here.
