History of the Area
This park was originally inhabited by the Tongva Native Americans. European exploration began around 1542 with Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo's expedition.

In the late 1800s, it became a popular resort destination due to its scenic beauty and mild climate. The Pacific Electric Railway made access easier for tourists from Los Angeles during that time period.

The area underwent significant development throughout the early-to-mid-20th century as population growth surged in Southern California.

It is known for recreational activities such as swimming and surfing along with attractions like Veterans Park and Redondo Beach Pier.
