Korean Friendship Bell

Home » Places » Landmarks » Korean Friendship Bell

Tucked away in the awesome community of San Pedro lies the Korean Friendship Bell. In the years of growing up in southern California I have never heard about nor seen the beautiful Korean Friendship Bell. Located just off Gaffey Street you pull into a parking lot overlooking the ocean and there lies in front of you a gorgeous multi-colored bell with a beautiful seating area around the bell for a picnic or just to relax.

It is a huge bronze bell with red pillars around it and was dedicated to the city of Los Angeles in 1978. There is even a basketball court to the right of the bell to play a game of ball overlooking a beautiful outlook of the Pacific Ocean. I highly recommend this spot for a picnic with a friend or even just to check out the gorgeous view; I went recently and could see for miles in every direction. They ring the bell only four times a year so it the bell is not loud and won’t wake you up from your afternoon nap!
