The drive up to the Bell is incredibly beautiful. Once you reach it the atmosphere is so chill and calming. Kite Flying, Grass Grazing, blanket lounging and maybe even Yoga Buffs surround the very well landscaped lawn. The site over looks the San Pedro area...More

You can fly kite and picknick in the grass. Its a lovely place and you have a public bathroom. You have to bring your own things to drink and eat. The Bell is Nice, and its close to fort MacArthur.

Went looking for Fort MacArthur museum-didn't find the building but did find this. Bell is nice but go for the view. Small playground next to bell good for kids and eating picnic. Park itself not really much there but did not go to other areas.

It's usually really windy here, so bring a jacket. Cool place to hang out if you're in San Pedro, great ocean views. They've filmed a lot of movies and tv shows here and in the surrounding areas so it's fun to recognize those places.
