During our family vacation in the 1970s we visited a place in Long Beach called Ports O' Call Village. Could this be it's predecessor?
I first visited Pierpoint when I was in Grade School...we took a boat trip around the harbor.

Pierpoint Landing was located on the western edge of what is now Pier F at the Port of Long Beach. It is indeed west of the 710 Freeway, but east of where the Pontoon Bridge was (the Pontoon was where the Gerald Desmond is now). If you look up Pier F Ave., Long Beach, on a map program, you'll see where it was. The land is now occupied partially by Jacobsen Pilot Services and the Port's security control center, and partially by a container terminal.
