The spectacular panoramic views of the coastline, Los Angeles Harbor, and Santa Catalina Island from the grassy cliffs of this 64-acre park are breathtaking. There is a children’s play area with small swings and a slide. Picnic tables and benches make it a perfect lunch area. And the basketball court has frequently been used for film locations. High on a hill, there’s usually a great kite flying breeze here.
Angels Gate Park is also home to the newly restored Korean Friendship Bell, a must-see California landmark. The bell is rung only 5 times each year:
· January – Korean American Day
· July – Independence Day
· August – Korean Independence Day
· September – Constitution Day
· December – New Year’s Eve
Angels Gate Park has several great community partners. Here’s a list of Angels Gate tenants including Fort MacArthur, Marine Mammal Care Center, International Bird Rescue Center, LAUSD SP High School Olguin Campus and South Bay Youth Mentors.
