Offering what may be the best vista point in the area, this is a great spot for walking, picnicking, and gazing out at the deep blue water, boats and Marina. Open daily.

Great voices and orchestra; lovely hillside setting overlooking marina. Just bring portable chairs or blankets, food & wine, and you're all set.

This park is just beautiful! Easy to reach by car or bicycle. Perfectly manicured lawns. Incredible views of the Marina. Plenty of places to have a picnic, a stroll with a furry loved one, or even gather for a family birthday or BBQ. There's a community center that I assume you can rent out and some days there's a little... More

This is a nice park to walk in, with a visitors center at the entrance and in summer months there are outdoor concerts held there on Thursdays and Saturdays. There isn't a children's playground (but you can find that at Mother's Beach nearby) but if you are lucky you may see seals basking in the sun.

Located on the water in Maria Del Rey, Burton W. Chace Park is One of the nicest city parks I've been to. Lots of grass, a bbq area, a few picnic table here and there, and a pavillion for events. On a hot day in LA, the provided a nice respite for a Mothers' Day lunch on the grass.

Summer Jazz etc. Concert Series a must... 4th of July for Fireworks...any other time good to relax and view the boats in the marina. Food over-priced so bring your own picnic...

Another favorite park of mine. I've been going there since the '80's. Love to take my dog and just walk around there and skip on over to the beach area too!

Super little park at the end of one of the marina end-caps. There is an excellent view of the Fourth of July lights if you are interested. Small park, with great bathrooms and lots of grass, up on little knolls. There are several benches that look right out at the marina and are right at the marina's edge. This location... More

I liked this place for sunset. I always grab cup of coffee from Starbucks and went to this lovely park. I like to watch all nice boats in Marina del Rey. Thanks god this park is not so overcrowded and known so I always had great relaxing moments here.

View of the Marina, sunset, picnics, what else can you ask for? Best secret park in LA. Parking is even free during the week. It is best to go before sunset, sit on the grass and have a picnic watching the sunset and the boats come in.
