Del Rey Lagoon Park in Playa del Rey

Oct 14, 2009 by Lisa Newton

In Playa del Rey–a sleepy little town just south of Marina del Rey–there’s a little known park called Del Rey Lagoon Park.

The two times I’ve previously visited this park, I had no trouble finding parking, and the weather and scenery were to die for.

I really don’t know why it’s not better known, but what’s not too love about it?

Del Rey Lagoon Park is the ending or beginning point, depending on how you look at it, of the Ballona Bike Trail. Across the bridge, you’re on your way to Culver City.

Although the park doesn’t have any basketball courts or baseball diamonds, it does have a Lagoon.

 

Feeding the ducks

The lagoon is home for several varieties of water fowl ready for a stale loaf of bread, as this stately gentleman found out.

 

Oh, a playground!!

Playa del Rey Lagoon park also has a small playground for kids. Here a fine young fellow enjoying a game of hopscotch. The playground’s surface is made of some sponge like material for safety reasons, and after feeling its buoyancy, I felt compelled to jump up and down on it–I’m still a kid at heart.

 

Let's Swing

Its swing set is useful, delightful, and well situated facing the beautiful homes alongside the coast.

 

Sun and Relax

When visiting here, don’t forget to bring your bathing suit and beach toys.

With the beach directly across the street, you can relax in the shade at Del Rey Lagoon one minute, and catch some rays at the tide’s seashore the next.

Just remember, there’s lots to see and do while Travelin’ Local, but:
