Park Details
Founders Park was formally accepted by the city on January 17, 2006, and named in honor of the city's founders who led the effort to incorporate the City of Rancho Palos Verdes in 1973. This 5.5-acre parcel is located adjacent to the Trump National Clubhouse and offers patrons an attractive site with breath-taking ocean views, picnic tables, a gazebo, nearby restrooms, coastal access and adjacent walking and biking trails. Dogs are welcome, but must be on a leash.
