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

The 600 block of San Pedro fell into the ocean. Now its called the Sunken City, cool graffiti, awesome view. If you are staring at the Point Fermin Lighthouse go all the way to your left, there is a fence there with a hole at the bottom that anybody, any size can fit thru, there is also a hole in... More

Lovely little park that was mentioned in our guide book, and we thought we'd stop in since it was very close to Long Beach, which I also heartily recommend. It's hard to sum up how nice the place is, it's idyllic. Parking is fine and free, there's a lighthouse that you can go in, but the main attraction is the... More

Got to spend some time there, just enjoying the view and peacefulness of the area. Great for picnic, don't forget your camera. We go there every year with my little family.
