The park is very nice and the old lighthouse is really nice to see, lots of trees and grass with a small play ground for the kids. You can get a fantastic view of Catalina Island on a clear day and looking down on the cliffs and ocean is always pleasing. This is a very relaxing place to spend some... More

Late Sunday afternoon we stopped here to see the lighthouse. There was a festival going on with live music on the public stage. We walked through the park with its beautiful shade trees enjoying the music. While the park has many amenities, its greatest is the incredible view of the ocean all the way to Catalina Island. As a bonus... More

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
