Palisades del Rey [ [http://www.elsegundo.net/our_city/curbed-la-ghostown-del-rey "Ghostown del Rey"] at Elsegundo.net] [ [http://www.jwairfair.com/images/ONCE_VIBRANT_BEACH_COLONY_A_GHOST_TOWN.doc Waffling article] at JWAirFair.com] , also known as Surfridge, was a community of 822 homes occupying convert|470|acre|ha in Los Angeles County, California. It lay south of Playa del Rey and north of El Segundo and immediately west of the perimeter of Los Angeles International Airport. The area is bounded by Rindge Avenue, Waterview Street, Pershing Drive, West Imperial Highway, and Vista del Mar.

Palisades del Rey was originally constructed in the 1920s. In the 1960s and 1970s, the area was acquired by the city in a series of eminent domain purchases and all the properties were demolished. It is now the protected habitat for the endangered El Segundo blue butterfly.

The beach to the west of the area is Dockweiler State Beach.
