Point Fermin Park is a beautiful park at the southern-most point of the city of Los Angeles which is located near San Pedro at the end of Gaffey Street. This 37 acre park marks an amphitheater, picnic and barbeque areas, a children’s playground and stunning vistas of the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island.
The park features an awesome walking path right on top of the cliff which overlooks the ocean with spectacular views and the ability to watch sea life. The centerpiece of the park is the historic Point Fermin Lighthouse which was built in 1874. The best time to visit this place is at low tide, when most of the rocks and pools are exposed. It is also one of the few places on the peninsula where Monarch butterflies spend their winters. It is a 4 mile out and back trail and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking & walking and is accessible year-round. Park is open at sunrise and closed at sunset.
In short, Point Fermin Park and its surrounding area is packed with spectacular views, geological wonders, and fascinating history.
