Park of the Week

Welcome to CicLAvia’s Park of the Week, a rotating selection of different parks that we love from all across LA County (many of which have been part of past CicLAvia routes).

This week CicLAvia Presents Wilmington Waterfront Park

Spanning several blocks along C St, Wilmington Waterfront Park has served as a hub location for two CicLAvia events: CicLAvia—Wilmington and San Pedro meets Wilmington. Completed in 2011, the park serves as a green space buffer between the Port of Los Angeles and the Wilmington neighborhood. The park consists of 30 acres of fields and walkways and is a great place for biking, walking, running, and other forms of recreation. 

Park features include:

  • Multipurpose play fields, commonly used for soccer
  • El Paseo Promenade which provides a pedestrian circuit with seating, display gardens, and a shared use pedestrian and bicycle path linked to the California Coastal Trail
  • Interactive water features including a splash pad
  • An adventure playground for children
  • Plazas and performance venues for community events
  • Tree-shaded picnic areas and pavilions
  • Viewing deck to watch Port activity

Check back each week for recommendations on where you can get outside, play, and explore in your community.
