Getting here required driving through some really shady looking neighborhoods. But the park itself is pretty attractive, with the cliffside, rocky beach, and the still-green grassy park. Lots of photographic opportunities. The lighthouse itself is pretty dinky. It's location right on the point is what makes it photogenic. I'd suggest coming here in the afternoon, when the sun is hitting... More

Not much to do there. Nice views, though. Fairly decent amount of parking. Probably nice place to walk your dog (I don't have a dog, though).

Everything about this place is electric, and I can't wait to get back for a visit every time i leave. This is by far one of my top ten places in the world. In a city full of crazies, people in a hurry, and those whom just don't appreciate what they have, this place makes you forget about ALL of... More

This park is so beautiful. They have covered picnic tables right on the edge of the cliff overlooking the ocean. The park also houses the historic Point Fermin Lighthouse. They give free tours of the lighthouse all the way up to the top where the light use to shine in the night sky every couple of house a day. The... More

This is a very pretty park with covered protected picnic tables on the edge of the cliff overlooking Catalina Island and the mouth of the Port of San Pedro. Good place for watching boat traffic, or enjoying the sea breeze. The light pretty Victorian light house was not open when we were there but looked interesting. There is a nice... More

When my wife and I travel to Los Angeles, we go to Point Fermin Park to sit on top of the tall cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. On a clear day you can see Catalina Island 26 miles away. The park is free, but parking is limited. There is a free public parking lot within walking distance to the park.... More

Came upon this lovely park by accident while exploring San Pedro after spending a day on the USS Iowa. What a treat it was. Amazing views of the ocean sets an amazing backdrop for a relaxing lunch or flying kites or even celebrating a birthday party for the kids. A beautiful lighthouse with a lovely garden all around sits in... More

Wonderful place to stay an afternoon. As we just finished the cruise and were waiting for our flight in the evening, we decided to go there on a whim. It was very beautiful and warm place at this time of the year, more over the water was very warm and we even saw dolphins nearby. There is a lot of... More

We had a wonderful picnic by the walls that overlook the beautiful ocean. The grounds are old but well kept up. There is an Old lighthouse there also that you can visit and view all the rooms. The weather was great for a days outing.

This is a gorgeous little park but not one that I would take my little one to on my own. There are a lot of creepy people wandering around there that didn't make it feel as safe as I would have liked. Other than that, my son's cub scout pack did their bridging ceremony there one evening and it was... More
