Burton W. Chace Park: 10 acres of lush lawn and trees extend into the Marina's main channel offering magnificent boat and ocean vistas. Built-in barbecue grills and tables invite picnicing. The free outdoor summer concerts run from July through September each year on Thursday and Saturday nights.
If you are into cycling, the Park is located on the South Bay Bicycle Trail which spans from Will Rogers State Beach to the north in Pacific Palisades to Torrance County Beach in the South at the base of the Palos Verdes Peninsula and the Park is located about halfway between the two points making it an ideal stop along the way.
Burton W. Chace Park has been the site of many weddings, scenes on television shows including the OC, and is home to a wealth of community events throughout the year. The Park office displays historical photographs of Santa Monica, Playa del Rey, and the canals of Venice in 1905, when they were new. There is an excellent history of Marina del Rey on the VisitMarinadelRey.com web site, and well as history section on this site. We invite you to come experience this wonderful park for yourself sometime soon!
