Gazebo at Rossler Point - Day & Night


The historic gazebo at Roessler Point overlooks the coastline at Malaga Cove and the South Bay cities of Torrance, Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, and more.

“The City Council has named the site Roessler Point in honor of our City's first Mayor, Fred Roessler, who served with distinction for 25 visionary years. The project includes re-staining and sealing the wooden gazebo, restoring the floor to Palos Verdes stone, providing handicapped access from the street to the gazebo in a new Palos Verdes stone walkway and enhancing the area with irrigated low-growing plantings.” (Ref. Palos Verdes Estates City – Newsletter: Feb 2001)
The same view from higher up at La Venta Inn can be seen in the 1928 historic photo, preserved and published on Flickr by the Palos Verdes Library-Local History room volunteers.

The night scene is very dramatic.

I may have been here. I did take a beach walk in that direction. Some really wildly landscaped hillside homes jutting up to the beach. Also a feral cat colony in the area.

I visited the historic link. Is this gazebo in the same spot as the circular pond?

It's incredible how different things, places look at night. Maybe that's why I get lost more easily after dark than I do in the daytime. Love both photos.

Great idea to show the same spot at day and night. I may have to "borrow" the idea.

Beautiful, but what a sky-glow. What would our ancestors have thought of the way we light up the night sky?
