Burton W. Chace Park was first opened in 1972 at 13650 Mindanao Way in Marina del Rey, California and was named in honor of the Father of the Marina and long-time Los Angeles County Supervisor, Burton W. Chace.  The Park hours are from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm 7 days a week while the Office hours are from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm 7 days a week. Burton W. Chace Park offers multi-purpose rooms, picnic tables, barbecues, pergolas, picnic shelters, outdoor programs, great harbor viewing areas, guest docks, and is host to numerous year-round events. Admission is free. The Marina del Rey water bus offers rides around the Marina for $1.00. There are always a number of Events going on in the Park throughout the year, including the Discover Marina del Rey Day where you can meet the Chace Family the first Sunday of each October.

The Park has a Community Room for which reservations may be made for your community event and great outdoor facilities. This web site was established by the Chace Family as a resource on the history of the Park, Burton W. Chace's many accomplishments and contributions to the County of Los Angeles, and a place where you may enjoy photos of the lovely Park and find detailed news on Events and the future of this wonderful Park.

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!
