Heartwell Park

    Heartwell Park      
  Parkview Village, a charming outdoor life style center located just off the intersection of Bellflower Boulevard and Carson Street, is across the Heartwell Park and 1/4 mile east of Long Beach City College. This village area was conceived in 1930s by Clark J. Bonner as a shopping center for his new housing development, "Lakewood Village". Bustling through the 1950s, with a bank, a post office, several shops, a movie theater and a Thrifty’s, the area later fell into disrepair as more and larger commercial areas developed nearby...

Parkview Village


Benjamin Efraim of BEPTAL, INC. found the area by accident in 1996 and had a vision. “I was following the development on Pine Avenue in Downtown Long Beach. One day I took a drive and came upon this beautiful park [Heartwell Park]. I saw a coffee shop across the street and picked up a cup. That’s when I noticed the architecture of these old buildings and the hidden charm of the village.”. To make a long story short, the triangular shaped village was in shambles and faced foreclosure. BEPTAL, INC. of Santa Monica wrote a bid and won the right to purchase the property.
