Angel's Gate Park, San Pedro

This must be the week for public use meetings. Last night is was the VA in Westwood, and on Saturday (Sept. 8, 1-3 pm) it will be Angel's Gate Park in San Pedro, at 3601 S. Gaffey Street, Building H.

According to the Daily Breeze, “the Los Angeles city park that is already home to the high-profile Korean Friendship Bell, the Angels Gate Cultural Center with artist studios and galleries, a military museum and a youth hostel. . . . ” will hear proposals for a bark park, swimming pool, sports fields, and cultural centers.

This is the second of 3 planned meetings; the third will be at 10 am, Sept. 29.

San Pedro's website describes the Korean Friendship Bell:
“This massive[17 tons] and intricately-decorated bell and pavilion was donated in 1976 to the people of Los Angeles by the people of the Republic of Korea to celebrate the bicentennial of the U.S. independence, honor veterans of the Korean War, and to consolidate traditional friendship between the two countries. The bell is patterned after the Bronze Bell of King Songdok, which was cast in 771 A.D. and is still on view in South Korea today.”
