It’s hard not to be struck by how much open space sits just across from El Camino Village. That’s due to the Alondra Park Golf Course and Alondra Park itself. Smack in the heart of the South Bay Alondra park offers all sorts of activities and things to do. The centerpiece of the park is the fishing pond with an abundance of wildlife and friendly (maybe too friendly) squirels and birds. The park also offers some great recreational facilities including a skate park, water features for the little ones, playground and a beautiful pool.

Information from the LA County Parks Department
The 53-acre park is designed with a wooded rural landscape and prairie setting amidst a beautiful urban lake. The proximity of Alondra Park to the ocean and an urban river, together with its lake, meadow lawns, and woodlands, contributes to the park functioning as a naturally landscaped habitat and environment for migratory wetland and upland birds. Alondra Park serves approximately 237,000 people in the cities of Lawndale, Torrance, Gardena, Hawthorne, and unincorporated El Camino Village. The island in the lake has a California native plant garden that is also an attractant for native butterflies and wild birds that migrate from Santa Catalina Island and the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
