|Will Rogers State Beach is a broad two-mile stretch of beach. There are blue spaces in all three parking lots along Pacific Coast Highway.
UPCOAST ENTRANCE AT
GLADSTONES 4 FISH
This restaurant, a Los Angeles landmark, is perched on a low bluff above the beach. In good weather you can dine on the deck, hang out on the rocks at the edge of the bluff, or take the steep asphalt road down to the beach.
The parking lot below Gladstones offers valet parking, but self-parking is allowed. The restaurants accessible restroom stalls are smaller than standard. The mens room has barely enough room to get a wheelchair into the stall and transfer forward onto the very low toilet. There is one low urinal.
CENTRAL ENTRANCE AT
TEMESCAL CANYON ROAD
The South Bay Bicycle Trail begins here and runs south 22 miles to Torrance Beach. There is also a pedestrian-only path north of the parking lot, perfect for a leisurely stroll.
The restrooms near the lifeguard headquarters are moderately accessible, with one modified stall, but theres a tight turn at the entrance.
DOWNCOAST ENTRANCE AT
The downcoast end of Will Rogers State Beach is a typical flat southern California beach. At this entrance (about three miles downcoast of Gladstones 4 Fish) you will find picnic tables, a concession stand, and sand volleyball courts. Two beach wheelchairs are available at the parking lot. Sidewalks at each end of the parking lot connect to the South Bay Bicycle Trail. There are benches on concrete along the trail, and a bicycle rental shop with a three-wheel recumbent bike near the concession stand.
There is a blue space on each side of the concession building. The building has a spacious, single-user restroom with a wide door and locking lever handle.
