We went here for a wedding. It was a nice setting; there were a few homeless people in the area panhandling. The park has really neat old trees. There are restrooms.

I spent a lot of time exploring Point Fermin Park as I growing up and I was so happy to find that it hasn't changed a great deal. The park still has the most amazing trees whose shapes defy explanation. The views of the ocean are unobstructed and change with the weather. I love that you can still hear the... More

This is a nice little park and a great place to start a run from. It is one of the greener places in the area and I find it to be a nice, peaceful place to take our dogs.

We enjoyed our visit to Point Fermin Park. The views of the Pacific Ocean are so nice. There is a historic lighthouse. It was built in 1874 and was the first navigational light house into the San Pedro Bay.

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
