Wilmington Waterfront Promenade


The newly completed Wilmington Waterfront Promenade is located at 301 S. Avalon Blvd. in Wilmington, adjacent to Banning’s Landing Community Center, at Berths 183-186. Measuring approximately 1,300 feet in length, the Promenade features both a “picnic pier” over the water, a public floating dock, tidal steps, waterfront seating and shading, among other amenities. Overlooking the Promenade is an expansive new open space bluff, as well as another upland area with pedestrian and bicycle trails, both with seating and views of the waterfront.  Later this year, the Port will break ground on the Avalon Promenade Bridge and Gateway project, which will connect the south end of Wilmington’s main corridor directly to the LA Waterfront via a pedestrian bridge.


The Wilmington Waterfront Promenade consists of nine acres along the water's edge at the terminus of Avalon Boulevard, spanning Berths 183 through 186 in Wilmington. The promenade is complemented by a picnic pier, public dock and tidal steps.


With Banning's Landing on one side and the Wilmington Youth Sailing Center on the other, the project was designed to connect Wilmington to its historic waterfront and to also separate the community of Wilmington from Port operations.


The Wilmington Waterfront Promenade is a product of the Port of Los Angeles' Public Access Investment Plan (PAIP). The PAIP was developed to create a direct link between the Port of Los Angeles' cargo success and community investment.
