Featured Building: Cove Marina

Duck hunting before construction of del Rey Marina

Cove Marina is located in del Rey Marina. Before the land was a marina, it had been a salt marsh that was fed by the Ballona Creek. The lands were mostly used by duck hunters.

In the mid 19th century, the marina area was considered to be turned into a commercial port. The United Stated Army again perused the idea in 1916, but the idea was economically impracticable. The idea was brought up again in 1936, but the San Pedro commercial harbor was more in favor.

In 1953, $2 million was finally authorized to fund the construction of the marina.

As construction was completing, the marina was in danger of a winter storm. When it hit, the result cost millions of dollars in damage repairs in the marina itself and the ships that were anchored there. A breakwater was built to protect the marina from this ever happening again. In 1965, the marina was finally completed at the cost of $36.25 million.
