The coastal community of Marina del Rey, California, is located in the center of Los Angeles’ Westside between Venice Beach and Playa del Rey, 4 miles north of Los Angeles International Airport.
Marina del Rey comprises 807 acres, of which half is underwater. The approximate borders include the area west of Lincoln Boulevard, east of Via Dolce, north of Ballona Creek, and south of Washington Boulevard/Oxford Basin. This area above and below water is entirely owned by the County of Los Angeles and is leased out to private leaseholders on long-term agreements. The community is surrounded on three sides by the City of Los Angeles.
Marina del Rey is an indispensable social, environmental and economic success, and has become a role model for other urban marinas throughout the world.
As the Marina heads into the next century, considerations for future planning and design are underway.
Marina del Rey will never be thought of as a finished product, but instead as a constantly evolving Marina “new town” with an inherent capacity to accept change.
Currently, the County continues to strive for an optimum balance between public and private interests, as economic and recreational needs reinforce Marina’s role as a multifunctional activity center for the Los Angeles metropolitan area.
Marina del Rey is only a handful of miles away from LAX and in close proximity to Los Angeles’ major freeways making it incredibly convenient for traveling. Its location on the Southern California coastline makes this marina a perfect home for your boat.
