One of the really fun things to do that the city of Rancho Palos Verdes hosts is Movies in the Park located at Hesse Park 29301 Hawthorne Blvd. For example this Saturdy, the 26th of August from 6:30pm – 10:00pm the movie “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” beginning at dusk, approximately 8:15 will be shown.
Movies In The Park
The city puts this on for free. Children’s events begin around 6:30pm and the folks at Electrikids are putting on all the fun stuff for kids to do. Electrikids is a great company focusing on kids’ fitness. You can get more information on schedules and other city activities here
Food trucks will be there around the same time. So while you can bring your own food if you wish, you don’t have to
Hesse Park is one of the more popular parks in Palos Verdes. It is well manicured with BBQ facilities, baseball field, soccer field, hiking trails, sand volley ball court and some of the more spectacular Channel Island and Ocean Views you will experience. The community center is home for many senior activities, classes and can be rented. One of the halls will hold up to 150 people

- Grandview Park – mostly uninmproved natural space of around 18 acres
