Project Overview

The Marina Park project encompasses a 10.5-acre site and involves new construction of a public park; a 24,000-square-foot Community and Sailing Center building; a 23-slip marina; a reconstructed 19th Street restroom building; a freestanding playground lighthouse feature; themed playground; outdoor fitness circuit; parking lots; and frontage street improvements.

The park will also be home to the new 6,100-square-foot Girl Scouts Leadership Center, which is being funded entirely by the Girl Scouts of Orange County.

Construction Updates:

The Marina Park project is making great progress and remains on schedule and under budget. Along with the undergrounding of the existing overhead utilities and foundation work currently taking place, the main building structural steel framing has begun!

Given the proximity to the ocean, a high performance specialty coating is being applied to all exposed structural steel which will prevent corrosion. 

Project Update presented to Council - September 23, 2014

Work on the seawall and restoom facility along Bay Avenue (between 18th and 19th Streets) continues and is expected to last approximately 2 months. During this time, beach users can access the Bay beach off of 19th Street. The 18th Street access and on street parking will be restored once the seawall construction is complete.

The new restroom facility is expected to reopen before the Memorial Day 2015 holiday. Temporary facilities will be provided within the vicinity in the interim.

For more information, please contact the Marina Park hotline at (949) 644-3366.
