It has been called everything from the ‘Endless Pier’ to the ‘Horseshoe Pier’, yet eventhrough all of the destruction and development, which has seen it change shape seven time,the Redondo Beach Pier has remained a focal point in the community for over 100 years.The pier has become a place where people, no matter the decade, can come to relax and feelthe sun shine across their face and the wind streak through their hair. Residents and tourists,
young and old, have also been able to cast their fshing lines, get a bite to eat, and go shopping.
