Pt Fermin Park is located in one of the most picturesque spots on the peninsula, as shown in thisphoto!!
We used to climb down those cliffs as teenagers to get to the tide pools below.
We had so much fun there, observing marine life... searching for starfish, crabs, and other fun creatures.
The park, sitting at the cliff's edge, is now fenced off to prevent falls, but it still provides a spectacular view of the coastline and the rocks below.
I had friends who chose this spot for their wedding ceremony-- at that time the rocks below were still accessible. What a perfect place for their wedding picture location of ocean and cliffs!!
Today, weddings still take place here up on the bluffs overlooking the ocean.
Catalina Island sits prominently out to the west, and this spot provides the most beautiful sunsets you can imagine.
Nature walks line the cliffs and lead to beautiful beaches.
During the year many come to take the scenic drive you see pictured here.
Within Pt Fermin park, sits the Pt Fermin Lighthouse which is one of California's historical lighthouses and the subject of many a lighthouse painting.
Quaint white picket fence lining its perimeter, it sits within beautifully manicured lawns in the center of the park.
The park itself offers a feeling of tranquility, its old magnificent trees with roots the size of most tree trunks,there to provide shade over the sprawling lawns and walkways.
Picnic areas are there for the family outings, play areas for the kids, and an outdoor amphitheater for plays and other entertainment.
Between December and April, for whale migration enthusiasts, the sidewalks that line the cliffs offer prime view for whale watching San Pedro-style!
Neighborhoods surrounding the park are a combination of bungalows reminiscent of the 1940's and apartments set on steep streets that resemble those in San Francisco.
From the ocean, looking toward the hills to the north, one could imagine they were in the Riviera, Mediterranean design homes dotting the hill to imitate a Mediterranean landscape.
