LET’S GET THE SUMMER STARTED! Summer’s arrival means longer days and warmer nights – a great time to be outdoors, spend time with family and friends, and enjoy life’s simple pleasures. It’s also the time of year when things get really exciting along the LA Waterfront. Between now and the end of September, we have a jam-packed calendar of events and activities in San Pedro and Wilmington, including the spectacular Tall Ships® Festival, movie nights and fireworks. We kick off the summer fun on June 20 with the grand opening of our Downtown Harbor, where historic downtown San Pedro meets the LA Waterfront. Join us as we celebrate with music, food and entertainment along the edge of the new harbor and the surrounding plaza which includes a boardwalk promenade, a 24,600-square-foot public plaza, benches and public art. (See Page 4) The Downtown Harbor will be completed in time to host the Tall Ships® Festival LA 2014 from Aug. 20-24, when more than a dozen wooden tall ships -- replicas of the 18th century vessels – sail into the Port. The festival begins with a “Parade of Sail” into the Port and will include day sails and tours, live entertainment, educational activities, arts and crafts, and plenty of food and drink. In addition, the event will feature something you’ve likely not seen before – the World’s Largest Rubber Duck. (See Page 5) Also, back by popular demand on June 27 is our Cars & Stripes Forever! celebration featuring 100+ classic cars, live music, food trucks, a beer garden and fireworks. From September 12 - 14 we welcome back the Port of Los Angeles Lobster Festival at Ports O' Call Village. One week later, rallycross racing comes to the LA Waterfront for the first time with the Red Bull Global Rallycross. In this issue, we have a full calendar of activities (See Pages 6-7) that includes information on these events and more. Last summer, more than a million visitors experienced the LA Waterfront and we’re expecting an even larger crowd this year. We hope you and your family will take part and enjoy the fun.

WILMINGTON MARINA PARKWAY The recently opened three-acre Wilmington Marina Parkway is emblematic of the transformation occurring along the LA Waterfront in Wilmington. Less than three years after the opening of Wilmington Waterfront Park, a 30-acre park not far away, the Wilmington Marina Parkway now caters to the boaters docked at the nearby Wilmington marinas. Nearby marinas with immediate access to the parkway include the California Yacht, Cerritos Yacht, Island Yacht Anchorage, Holiday Harbor, and Lighthouse Landing marinas. "The most important part of this space is the police enforcement aspect,” said David Arian, Vice President, Los Angeles Harbor Commission. “The Port not only builds parks, we maintain and police these areas too, keeping the Wilmington community safe and secure.” Construction began in June 2013 and was completed by Pima Construction in February, at a total cost of $1.2 million, paid by the Port through China Shipping mitigation funding. Wilmington resident Donna Ethington was a major force behind the creation of the park. “The park is an oasis in the community. People walk their dogs here and ride their bicycles. It’s wonderful and we did it,” Ethington said.

with built in solar-powered trash compactors, and pet stations add to the visitor-friendly environment. “The Port of L.A. is industrial, but it’s also a people’s port that provides open space and recreational opportunities,” said Los Angeles City Councilman Joe Buscaino. “To get jobs and make this a tourist destination, we need projects like this. Waterfronts enhance communities and employ people and we need that here in Wilmington as well as in San Pedro,” he said. “This parkway is truly a hidden treasure,” said Gary Lee Moore, Interim Executive Director of the Port of Los Angeles. “I’m proud of the Port team members who transformed this area, and we remain committed to maintaining it for years to come.”

“The park is an oasis in the community. People walk their dogs here and ride their bicycles. It’s wonderful and we did it.” – Donna Ethington Wilmington Resident

Located at Anchorage and Shore roads, amenities on the oncevacant site now include landscaping and irrigation, with more than 200 trees and 2,500 shrubs planted along 2,000 feet of a paved walking path. Picnic tables, park benches, trash/recycle receptacles

DOWNTOWN HARBOR DEBUT What could be better than sitting on a dock on the bay in San Pedro, enjoying the morning sun and watching the ships roll in? This summer, such carefree maritime moments will be easy once the Downtown Harbor project opens a new inlet for waterfront strollers and recreational boaters. It’s a 1.2-acre treasure along the LA Waterfront between Fire Station 112 and the L.A. Maritime Museum. Construction on the $38.5 million project started in 2012 and its completion will open new access and leisure opportunity for pedestrians and boaters to explore the San Pedro waterfront and downtown. “This will be the first time we’ve had intentional recreational use of this space,” said Marifrances Trivelli, director of the Los Angeles Maritime Museum. “This will be a place where people can sail into, tie up and enjoy San Pedro and then return to the water. We’ve not had anything like this.” A community celebration of the new dock is scheduled for 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, June 20 at the site, located along Harbor Boulevard between 5th and 6th streets in San Pedro. The event will feature live music, as well as shoreside strolling jugglers, people on stilts and activities for children. A modern plaza surrounds the inlet and features landscaping, lighting and expansive promenades. Soon after the ceremony, pleasure boaters can begin to use the 4

inlet. Boaters can dock without charge and then visit waterfront attractions such as the Battleship IOWA, CRAFTED at the Port of Los Angeles, Ports O’ Call Village, or walk a few blocks into the heart of downtown San Pedro for shopping or dining. The Downtown Harbor will accommodate about 15 vessels up to 40 feet in length. The new Downtown Harbor is intended to be a focal point welcoming visitors and boaters to the water's edge just steps from downtown San Pedro – a welcome development for recreational mariners. “I think it’s a great idea,” said Pamela Botis, manager for the Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club. “There would be lots of times when people are on their boats enjoying the water and need to come in and get something to eat or drink or run an errand. A temporary slip will be fabulous, it will make boating much more enjoyable and make it easier to access some of the businesses and other downtown developments,” she said. Later in summer, the Downtown Harbor will become a main staging area for the Tall Ships® Festival Los Angeles 2014 from Aug. 20 to 24. Tall Ships are big wooden schooners and brigantines with tall masts and sails. A dozen or more of these classic ships will arrive and dock in the new harbor and surrounding waterfront so people can visit, tour or sail aboard them. The new dock will be an ideal place to sit and watch the boats.

TALL SHIPS FESTIVAL L.A ®

For five glorious days in August, LA Waterfront visitors will have the rare chance to catch a glimpse, step aboard and even set sail on some of the grandest ships of yore. Join us at the LA Waterfront as more than a dozen international and domestic grand Tall Ships sail into San Pedro Bay from all over the Pacific for Tall Ships® Festival L.A. 2014. Adding to a summer roster of exciting events, the festival runs Aug. 20-24. It’s the first time the ships – big wooden schooners and brigantines with masts of billowing sails -- will have anchored in San Pedro in six years. Tall Ships® Festival Los Angeles will showcase domestic and international ships, including some of the most acclaimed worldwide. Bruce Heyman is the executive director of the non-profit L.A. Maritime Institute, which will feature two ships in the festival, the Irving Johnson and the Exy Johnson. He said the boats provide an opportunity to connect to the history of mariners and explorers who sailed similar ships to discover new worlds and link continents. “The magic is these boats represent sailing vessels that were the most significant technological advancement the human race ever made. Cultures around the world were once bound to their local area, but these ships were the beginning that led to the shrinking of our world, which continues today,” Heyman said.

A Multi-Day Onboard Ship Tour Pass is available for $19. The pass provides five-day access to the festival grounds, on board ship tours and countless activities. In addition to onboard tours, Tall Ships® Festival LA will offer the opportunity for visitors to sail on the open ocean aboard the Schooner Freda B, Schooner Curlew and several others. Each vessel will sail several times daily beginning Thursday, August 21. Cost for each ticket is $85. Special discounts are available for local residents. Other ticket options include: • The Grand Parade of Sail which allows purchasers the opportunity to sail into the Port of Los Angeles past Angel’s Gate Lighthouse and into the LA Harbor aboard a Tall Ship for $150 as part of their grand entrance at the beginning of the event. • A Single-Day Dockside Viewing Festival Pass is available for $7 and free to children 1-4 years old. This pass provides one-day access to dockside ship views and the festival grounds. Of course a festival of this magnitude would not be complete without a large selection of fantastic fare. A bevy of local options will be on hand including L.A.’s regional food trucks, California wine tasting and for the beer lovers, San Pedro Brewing Company will provide a curated, full craft brew menu featuring the region’s best brewers.

WILMINGTON MARINA PARKWAY La reciente apertura de la Wilmington Marina de tres acres es emblema de la transformación que ocurre a lo largo del LA Waterfront en Wilmington.

los receptáculos de basura/reciclaje con compactadores de basura a energía solar y las estaciones de mascotas se suman al ambiente agradable para el visitante.

Menos de tres años después de la apertura de Wilmington Waterfront Park, un parque de 30 acres, no muy lejos, Wilmington Marina Parkway ahora sirve a los navegantes atracados en los puertos cercanos de Wilmington. Puertos cercanos con acceso inmediato a la autopista incluyen el California Yacht, Cerritos Yacht, Island Yacht Anchorage, Holiday Harbor, y Lighthouse Landing.

"El Puerto de Los Ángeles es industrial, pero también es el puerto de un pueblo que ofrece espacios abiertos y oportunidades de recreación", dijo el concejal de la ciudad de Los Ángeles Joe Buscaino. Agregó: "Para conseguir un trabajo y hacer de este un destino turístico, necesitamos proyectos como éste. Waterfronts mejora las comunidades y emplean a la gente y necesitamos eso aquí en Wilmington, así como en San Pedro".

"La parte más importante de este espacio es el aspecto represivo de la policía", dijo David Arian, vicepresidente de la Comisión del Puerto de Los Ángeles". El Puerto no sólo construye parques, también cuidamos y controlamos estas áreas, para mantener a la comunidad de Wilmington a salvo y segura." La construcción comenzó en junio de 2013 y se completó con la Constructora Pima en febrero, con un costo total de $1,2 millones, pagados por el Puerto a través de fondos de mitigación de China Shipping. La residente de Wilmington Donna Ethington fue una fuerza principal detrás de la creación del parque. "El parque es un oasis en la comunidad. La gente trae a caminar a sus perros aquí, andan en sus bicicletas. Es maravilloso y lo hicimos", dijo Ethington. Situado en las carreteras Anchorage y Shore, los servicios en el sitio una vez vacante ahora incluyen jardinería y riego, con más de 200 árboles y 2.500 arbustos plantados a lo largo de 2.000 metros de un sendero pavimentado. Las mesas de picnic, bancas del parque,

"Esta avenida es verdaderamente un tesoro escondido ", dijo Gary Lee Moore, Director Ejecutivo interino del Puerto de Los Ángeles. "Estoy orgulloso de los integrantes del equipo del puerto que transformaron esta área, y seguimos comprometidos a mantenerlo durante los años por venir."

News at The Port Port of Los Angeles Hosts International Economic Summit

Port of Los Angeles Approves $500K in ‘Healthy Harbor Grants’

How would you improve the world economy? In celebration of World Trade Week in May, the Port of Los Angeles hosted an International Economic Summit at the Port of Los Angeles, and asked that very question. More than 300 local high school students participated in a one-day simulation event to demonstrate the importance of global trade, alliances and investment, by forming trade alliances to improve their assigned country’s standard of living. The program, developed by Boise State University’s International Economic Summit Institute, is designed to change the way students see the world and themselves.

The Los Angeles Harbor Commission has approved nine “Healthy Harbor Grants” totaling $550,000 that will help promote health care, health education, community outreach, and access to respiratory care in the harbor communities of San Pedro and Wilmington. The grants were funded from the Port Community Mitigation Trust Fund, administered through the Port of Los Angeles’ partnership with San Pedro based Harbor Community Benefit Foundation (HCBF), an independent nonprofit organization created to mitigate the environmental impacts of port operations. HCBF was created in 2011 as a result of the settlement known as the “TraPac Memorandum of Understanding” in which the Port agreed to establish the Port Community Mitigation Trust Fund to support collaborative efforts to grow and green the Port, and to alleviate the effects of environmental and public health impacts of its business operations on the community. The trust fund is administered by HCBF.

North Promenade Now Open Along the LA Waterfront The North Promenade extension near Battleship USS IOWA is now open to the public! The entrance is on Harbor Blvd., just north of Downtown Harbor at 5th Street. The landscaped area includes palm trees, native plants and park benches with a waterside view. The North Promenade connects to the Harbor Boulevard Parkway, adjacent to the new Downtown Harbor town square, opening on June 20.
