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.

I have been to this park on multiple occasions over the years. The first visit was just to find a place to watch the boats go out and come in in The Marina. I have attended a Family Reunion here and there were plenty of resources and facilities for that. I have also attended numerous Jazz Concertsat the Park and... More

On one side of the sidewalk that goes along the park, one can see beautiful views of the Marina and on the other side is the green grassy park with calming shade trees. This is a lovely place to walk, exercise, walk your dog on a leash, or for friends and families to have a picnic or barbecue. Some built-in... More

lovely place to walk around... or take a picnic. Facilities to barbeque. Lots of seating area. Special to see the Sea Lions around the moored boats and able to get so close to them. A beautiful place to sit and watch the world go by....very relaxing!

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
