Seaside Lagoon

With the fate of the Seaside Lagoon in Redondo Beach uncertain (again), I thought I'd post some pictures of this aging community landmark. This shot shows the entrance to the facility. I spent many summer days enjoying the Lagoon, and its now removed diving boards.

Taking a few paces backwards, this signs lists all the attractions of the Portofino section of King Harbor.

Returning to the Lagoon on a calm Sunday afternoon.

I love signs which detail the history of our local communities.

This fountain IS the Seaside Lagoon. Even as a kid, I appreciated the style and design of this mid century local icon.

A close up view details the simple grace of this remnant of 1963. Who knows if this wonderful swimming area will still be around for the next generation of South Bay children.

Visit the Seaside Lagoon Website here, and sea the current options for the site.
