Silverado Park is a city-operated park of 11.8 acres (4.8 ha)[1] in the West-Side area of Long Beach, California. It was built in the 1930s under the auspices of the Works Progress Administration.[2] It is in an area with increased crime rates[3] although events such as a children's Christmas party have also taken place there.[4] In 2005 the park was part of a study conducted by CSULB biologists on the behavior of house finches in heavily urbanized environments.[5]
