Geocache Description:

Medium size container with a log and swag, room for trades

Cache is in a nice little park near Golden Shore Marine Biological preserve in Long Beach.
This park contains a small salt marsh that was built as mitigation for wetlands destroyed in Long Beach Harbor. Located at the mouth of the LA River, it's surprising to see such a large natural area right in the heart of downtown Long Beach.
Golden Shores is the largest salt marsh accessible to the public. The wetlands include several different salt marsh grasses (like California cord grass and salt grass), as well as pickelweed. Mudflats and open tidal channels provide a diversity of habitats that provide foraging grounds for many different birds.
This is a great place to watch egrets, herons, ducks, terns and a variety of shorebirds. You can watch these birds through the fence that keeps you out of the marsh. There are some interpretive signs that inform you about wetland ecology and wildlife.

The LA River Bikepath goes right around the perimeter of the park, and the Passport Bus stops nearby at Catalina landing, so it's easily accessible without a car. There's a nearby parking lot with meters, but free after 6PM.

Also, This is a great place to get a view of the Queen Mary. Most people never view her from this angle.

Great place to bring your lunch, find a cache and watch the wild life.
