Del Rey Lagoon

6660 Esplanade St.
Marina del Rey, CA 90292
Best Of
The Del Rey Lagoon city park is hidden away on a swampy stretch of beachside property in Marina del Rey, bordered on both sides by protected wetlands and prime ocean real estate. For all its natural beauty, the lagoon doesn't tend to fill up with people until summertime weekends, when the basketball courts hum to life with pickup games and children take over the adjacent kids' park. During the colder, foggier winter months, the Del Rey Lagoon is all but forgotten to most folks, leaving the grassy expanses and pathways wide open. But even on a busy day, the sight of herons relaxing in the water while Little Leaguers beat the basepaths on the nearby baseball diamond is something to behold.
