Revival of the San Pedro waterfront

For years, officials in San Pedro have tried to spruce up the Port of Los Angeles by adding parks, trails and fountains along the water’s edge. But it was rarely enough to entice Angelenos to make the trek down to the southern tip of the county.

This summer, the community is hoping that its fortunes are about to change.

The arrival of the Iowa, a former World War II battleship turned floating museum, is expected to draw 400,000 visitors a year when it opens Saturday, July 7. Another lure: the opening of a massive marketplace of handmade goods and specialty foods.

It’s all part of a $1.2-billion master plan to turn the port into a coastal destination.
