Trivia

Marina Del Rey

The nearby area and attraction of Marina Del Rey is a sought after seaside community in Los Angeles nearby Crescent Walk residences. The marina itself is the world's largest man-made harbor with 19 marinas and room for 5,300 boats. It is currently home port to approximately 6,500 boats, and is said to be the county's most valuable resource.

Its history dates back to the late 1800's when the area was occupied by a salt-marsh fed by fresh water from the Ballona Creek. The area was then frequented by duck hunters, but few others. The area was declared economically impractical after a visit in 1916 by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. A reevaluation was ordered in 1936, giving the area another chance as U.S. Congress persisted. The area still lost out to San Pedro as a commercial harbor and development.

Finally in 1953, a loan of $2 million was authorized to fund the construction of Marina Del Rey. Millions of dollars in damage was caused during construction from a winter storm in 1962 to 1963. The marina was complete by 1965. The total cost of construction was $36.25 million.

Today, Marina Del Rey offers a peaceful and sought-after residence, with an estimated population of 8,866 people.[5]
