The Korean Friendship Bell was a gift from the Republic of Korea commemorating the USA bicentennial and the friendship between our countries. It is a very large brass bell in an ornamental stone enclosure. It is located in Angel's Gate Park with the beautiful Pacific Ocean as a backdrop. Walking the grounds was both pleasant and peaceful!

I have visited this place since I was 16, I visit at least once a year, deiced to give it the 5 star rating it deserves. On a clear and sunny day you can see all the way to Catalina island. Simply an awesome view, good place to fly kites, lay on the grass, take photos.

We returned to visit the Korean Bell of Fellowship on a beautiful warm November day. Many people were out and taking photos by the bell. There is beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean. There is also a tree that is dedicated to the everlasting friendship between the Republic and the USA.

A friend of mine and my 3 year old son went on an adventure, and this happen to be one of the spots. It's was sooooooo nice. It wasn't crowed, and we stayed up there until the sun set. Go here and relax!!

Very nice place to hang out. Awesome view at the ocean and Catalina Island. Easy place to fly kites at any level. The wind will just keep on going.

This is a must see when your in San Pedro. The setup goes like this... The moment you pull in you have parking with 4 basketball courts on the inside. You will have a 3 and half min hike towards the bell after you park. Wonderful views once you reached its location. A+

We loved it here! Little piece of Korea in Cali with nice ocean views. 2 mins down the road is MacArthur fort and museum that is also worth to visit.

Good to see if you like to visit a place that is not so crowded with people. Has parking space right next to the hill. It's windy up there.
