  • This is located in the very large Angels Gate Park with panoramic views of the Pacific and the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. A great spot to fly a kite and enjoy a picnic lunch!  more »

  • First know this park does not have a large field. If you don't require that it is so lovely. For the past 2 years I've met up with my extended family for a reunion here. There is a little grassy area for small games, plenty of shaded tables to sit, eat and chat, and a little playground for the kiddos. It is quiet and the view of the harbor from here is gorgeous. It can be hot until the wind picks up the afternoon. Bring a light jacket and a kite.
  • Awesome urban park. Fantastic views of Pacific Ocean. Great kids equipment for younger kids & older kids (slides, jungle gym, etc). Large gym with basketball on-site; used for summer camps during summer. Good trials for hiking and mountain biking.
  • I've always liked this park as a child but now as an adult I can truly appreciate the incredible view. This park is in my opinion a locals only park. If you don't live in Pedro (or aren't associated with Pedro people) you wouldn't know it even exists. Not off any major street. Its tucked in up high.
  • Small park on the hill with a great view of the port and a ton of picnic tables. By the parking lot there's a small nature conservation center to poke around in, and behind that it looks like there was a trail head too, so tons for people to do (+ a playground for the kiddos).
  • Beautiful view just heads up, you can see the beach but it doesn't take you there.
