Completely enclosed by the city of Long Beach, the small community of Signal Hill is big on history, recreation and entertainment.
In its past, the city served as the filming grounds for a major California film company, though Signal Hill's landscape changed forever - literally - when oil was discovered in the 1920s. As part of the Long Beach Oil Field, the city was part of one of the world's most prolific oil fields, and it was once dotted with tall oil wells and pumps. Over time, those pumps were replaced with residential and commercial buildings, and today apartment residents in Signal Hill have struck it rich in terms of the amenities their community offers.
Signal Hill is notable for its numerous green spaces, giving apartment renters a number of different parks to enjoy all year round. Each offers different trails for apartment residents who want to get a little exercise jogging or walking, and great vantage points for those looking to get a fabulous picture or view of the Long Beach area.
Signal Hill also offers apartment renters a number of fun ways to interact with their neighbors and get involved with their community. The Friday Film Night series showcases a new movie each week, while local museums and venues put on special events throughout the year.
