Location & Directions

From North of Long Beach: Take I-405 South or I-605 South.

From South of Long Beach: Take I-405 North or 22 West.


From any of these freeways, exit 7th St. (22 West).

- Take the first exit on the right, Studebaker Ave. (Watch out, it comes up quickly).

- Follow the ramp to the light onto Studebaker. Turn left.

- Take Studebaker until it comes to a T at Westminster Blvd. Turn right.

- As you cross Pacific Coast Highway, Westminster turns into 2nd St. Continue straight.

- Get in the right lane.

- Cross over the 2nd St. bridge and on the downward side of the bridge, take the exit on the right, Appian Way.

- At the bottom of the ramp, straight ahead you’ll see a parking lot with a grass area behind it. This is the practice area.

Where to Park:


The Dragon Boating Committee has received complaints from the resident, and it is restricted to park on the residential streets.

There are two options:

  1. You may park at the metered parking lot as you reach the bottom of the ramp; however, you have to pay.


  2. For free parking, as you reach the bottom of the ramp, turn right onto Appian. Continue on Appian and drive under the 2nd St. bridge. After taking Appian Way under the 2nd St. bridge, turn left at the Stop sign into the free Marina parking lot. Park in the side of the lot nearest the 2nd St. bridge.

Walk back under the 2nd St. bridge on Appian a few minutes to Mother's Beach. The team assembles under the trees on the grassy area next to the Mother's Beach metered lot. Ask for X-Generals, if you get lost.
