Home to North America’s largest man-made, small-craft harbor, a stunning marina that houses approximately 5,000 boats, both the California and Pacific Mariners Yacht Clubs, USC’s Information Sciences Institute, the UCLA Marina Aquatic Center, and Loyola Marymount University’s boathouse, Marina del Rey is the epicenter of boating, sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding and every conceivable form of water recreation in Los Angeles. Marina del Rey is a unique neighborhood that combines majestic views of the Pacific Ocean with the charm of a seaside village and the energy and diversity of modern day L.A.
Originally a vast salt marsh fed by Ballona Creek that was popular with duck hunters, development on the marina began in 1953 when the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and federal government joined forces to cover the $36.25 million cost for land, construction and initial operations. On April 10, 1965 Marina del Rey was formally dedicated and L.A. County began soliciting 60 year leases to developers who created the residential, commercial and environmental features that are the hallmark of this exclusive enclave.
Today, Marina del Rey is home to 8,866 residents, according to the 2010 U.S. Census, who live within the 1.5 square miles than make up this one-of-a-kind community. The median household income is $95.248 and the average home price is $1.1 million. Served by the LAUSD, students from Marina del Rey attend Coeur d’Alene Avenue Elementary School in Venice, Marina del Rey Middle School, and Venice High School. Whether you are a sailor or someone who simply cherishes water views, Marina del Rey is a great place to live, work, relax and raise a family.
