Cabrillo Beach opened in 1928. The newly build boathouse and pier are to the left. The construction of the Cabrillo Bathhouse had not begun.

By 1932 the Cabrillo Beach Bathhouse was completed and the Cabrillo Beach became a hub of activity for people to enjoy a day at the beach

The Port of Los Angeles built this 3.5 acre salt marsh in 1985.

The last pergola added to Cabrillo Beach was in the middle. It was the only one with a gas stove.

School tours started in the 1950s. Marine life was featured in the downstairs of the bathhouse.
