The local Realtor Boards were invited to a luncheon yesterday provided by the Annenberg Foundation at the new Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes. The presentation was on their new proposed DISCOVERY PARK at Lower Point Vicente. Discovery Park would annex the Point Vicente Interpretive Center combining with and adding a combination of exhibits and programs on topics relevant to the region and community: a Tonga village, an archaeological dig, flora and fauna, geology, weather, local pioneers including whalers and ranchers and much more. It will be a Gift to the Community provided by the Annenberg Foundation under the leadership of Wallis Anennberg. Ongoing operations and maintenance would be underwritten by the Foundation as well.

The presentation was lengthy and informative. The proposed projects and designs were awesome and beautifully articulated. Since there is too much information for my simple blog, click on the link to learn about the Lower Point Vicente Discovery Park Project and the Annenberg foundation.

You may already be familiar with some of their other Los Angeles programs, such as the Annenberg Space for Photography and Annenberg Community Beach House. You can also call with questions or concerns regarding the project at 310-406-3710 or email

p.s. my dogs photos appear here because they are definitely in favor of the project. We walk the trails all the time and know this will be a wonderful addition (especially the Pet Adoption Suites) for the community and our families.

p.s.s. The Lunch was FABULOUS! I highly recommend the new Terranea Resort as well and their public access grounds are animal friendly!
