Point Vicente Interpretive Center:
This beautiful park, located adjacent to the Pt. Vicente Lighthouse, offers recreational and educational opportunities to the public.
The Interpretive Center opened in 1984 with a mission to present and interpret the unique features and history of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. The almost 10, 000 square foot newly expanded Interpretive Center, re-opened on July 15, 2006, features exhibits on the natural and cultural history of the Peninsula, with a special emphasis on the Pacific gray whale. This premier whale watch site provides spectacular opportunities to view the annual migration of the Pacific gray whale, from December through April.
Los Serenos de Point Vicente is the City’s volunteer docent organization. The City trains volunteers (docents) to lead tours inside the museum at the Interpretive Center, and to lead hikes in several Peninsula locales. If you are interested in becoming a docent, please call the Docent Coordinator at 310-544-5265.
