PORT OF LOS ANGELES UNVEILS NEW DOWNTOWN HARBOR AND TOWN SQUARE ON THE LA WATERFRONT

 

On Friday, June 20, at 6 p.m., the Port of Los Angeles will unveil the new centerpiece of the LA Waterfront: Downtown Harbor and Town Square, located on Harbor Boulevard, between 5th and 6th Streets in San Pedro. Situated between the World Cruise Center and Ports O’ Call Village at the foot of the San Pedro Historic Waterfront District, Downtown Harbor is a vibrant, new public harbor and plaza that connects downtown San Pedro to the LA Waterfront.

“This project, which was completed on time and more than $4 million under budget, exceeds all of my expectations on design and feel,” said Los Angeles Councilman Joe Buscaino. “Downtown Harbor will become the source of memories that will last a lifetime. I commend the Port of Los Angeles on delivering a substantial asset for our community.”

Downtown Harbor opens up 1.2 acres of existing waterfront between Fire Station 112 and the Los Angeles Maritime Museum. Previously a parking lot, the space has been transformed with a new harbor inlet for recreational vessels to dock free of charge for up to four hours. Surrounding the inlet is a public plaza and pedestrian promenade that features trees and landscaping, decorative lighting, a picnic area, and an overlook pier.
