Alondra Community Regional Park is the largest park closest to the ocean and the beach cities of Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, and Redondo Beach. The 53-acre park is designed with a wooded rural landscape and prairie setting amidst a beautiful urban lake. The proximity of Alondra Park to the ocean and an urban river, together with its lake, meadow lawns, and woodlands, contributes to the park functioning as a naturally landscaped habitat and environment for migratory wetland and upland birds. Alondra Park serves approximately 237,000 people in the cities of Lawndale, Torrance, Gardena, Hawthorne, and unincorporated El Camino Village.
The island in the lake has a California native plant garden that is also an attractant for native butterflies and wild birds that migrate from Santa Catalina Island and the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
