South Korea extends its hand of friendship with the Korean Friendship Bell

South Korea extended its hand in friendship to the people of Los Angeles in 1976 by presenting them with the beautiful Korean Friendship Bell. 

Presented at the time of our Bicentennial, it was also was intended to honor the veterans of the Korean War. 

The Korean Friendship Bell sits within the Bell Pavilion on a knoll overlooking Point Fermin. 

It provides a spectacular view of the ocean and is a perfect place to view a beautiful sunset as shown here. As the sun was starting to set, groups of people arrived to enjoy the view. 

Sitting within a Pagoda-style structure and supported by twelve columns that represent the Oriental zodiac, it is silhouetted against the Pacific Ocean and provides beauty beyond compare. 

On a clear day, Catalina Island can be seen in the distance. This is a place to go, not only to enjoy the surrounding sights, but to examine the intricate and beautifully crafted Bell and the Pavilion in which it sits. 

The Pavilion is located in Angel's Gate Park which also offers a children's play area,a soccer field and recreation center. 

The park is located at Gaffey and 37th Streets overlooking

Point Fermin Park and Lighthouse. Camouflaged behind the Bell and Angel's Gate Park is the Fort MacArthur Museum and is a must see for all.
