Wilmington Waterfront Promenade Set to Debut February 3rd.

The culmination of over three years of construction is set for February 3, as the Port of Los Angeles prepares to celebrate the completion of the new Wilmington Waterfront Promenade. This $77-million project, situated on a previously vacant industrial property near the Banning's Landing Community Center, spans nine acres of fresh public open space. It features a waterfront walkway connecting to a public pier, a dock, a children's playground, public restrooms, and a parking lot.

Designed by Sasaki Associates, Inc., the project required the realignment of Water Street alongside a freight rail right-of-way along the park's northern perimeter. Future plans involve linking the promenade to the upcoming Avalon Promenade and Gateway, a four-acre public park project, through the construction of a 400-foot-long pedestrian bridge. The City of Los Angeles aims to commence work on this project in Winter 2024 and complete construction by Summer 2027.

The Wilmington project is part of a broader initiative for new waterfront open spaces near the Port of Los Angeles. A few miles south in San Pedro, the Port initiated construction on the second and final phase of the San Pedro waterfront promenade last year. This phase will traverse the West Harbor complex's footprint. These endeavors may serve as a prelude to a comprehensive master plan envisioning additional streetscape improvements and parks in and around the Port of Los Angeles over the coming decades.
