One of the best kept secrets in the South Bay is Redondo Beach’s Hopkins Wilderness Park. This eleven acre camping, picnic and study park is located just where Sepulveda becomes Camino Real in Redondo Beach(see our Map). It sits high upon the El Segundo Sand Hills. You will find meadows, water streams and ponds housing turtles, crayfish and bullfrogs, Wilderness Park welcomes visitors as well as day and overnight campers (reservation required).
There is no entrance fee for day visitors with the park being open six days a week (closed Wednesday) from 10:00a.m. – 4:30 p.m. daily.
This is a great place to take the children to introduce them to Nature. You can even camp over night if you wish. But if you are not that ambition they have wonderful camp site for picnics.
It is worth a trip just to see what is offered at this unique city park and once you do see it , I guarantee you will be back.
This is another prime example why home ownship in the South Bay is so worthwhile.
