Below is some general information about Marina Del Rey:

Marina del Rey is an affluent unincorporated seaside community and census-designated place in Los Angeles County, California. A Westside locale, the population was 8,866 at the 2010 census. Fisherman’s Village offers a view of Marina del Rey’s dominant feature, the Marina, the world’s largest man-made small craft harbor with 19 marinas with capacity for 5,300 boats and is home port to approximately 6,500 boats. The harbor, the Los Angeles Times said in 1997, is perhaps the county’s most valuable resource.

Marina del Rey falls within unincorporated Los Angeles County and is southeast of the L.A. City community of Venice and north of the L.A. City community of Playa del Rey, near the mouth of Ballona Creek. It is located four miles north of Los Angeles International Airport. It is bounded on all sides by the City of Los Angeles. The beach-style homes, the strip of land against the beach, and the beach itself, west of the harbor, are within the City of Los Angeles limits, but share the same zip code as Marina del Rey. The name of this strip is the Marina Peninsula. Via Dolce and the southern portion of Via Marina are the boundaries between L.A. City and the unincorporated area. According to the United States Census Bureau, Marina del Rey has an area of 1.5 square miles. The marina itself, a specially designed harbor with moorings for pleasure craft and small boats, is surrounded by high-rise condos, hotels, apartments, shops, and restaurants. The area also includes the University of Southern California Information Sciences Institute and the UCLA Marina Aquatic Center. The community is served by the three-mile-long Marina Freeway (State Route 90), which links Marina del Rey directly to Interstate 405 and nearby Culver City.

Prior to its development as a small craft harbor, the land occupied by Marina del Rey was a salt-marsh fed by fresh water from Ballona Creek, frequented by duck hunters and few others. Burton W. Chace, a member of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, referred to the area as mud flats, though today the area would more properly be referred to as wetlands. In the mid-19th century, M.C. Wicks thought of turning this Playa del Rey estuary into a commercial port. He formed the Ballona Development Company in 1888 to develop the area, but three years later the company went bankrupt. In 1953, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors authorized a $2 million loan to fund construction of the marina. Since the loan only covered about half the cost, the U.S. Congress passed and President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed Public Law 780 making construction possible. Ground breaking began shortly after. On April 10, 1965 Marina del Rey was formally dedicated. The total cost of the marina was $36.25 million for land, construction, and initial operation.

The 2010 United States Census reported that Marina del Rey had a population of 8,866. The population density was 6,094.6 people per square mile. The racial makeup of Marina del Rey was 7,071 (79.8%) White (74.7% Non-Hispanic White), 465 (5.2%) African American, 31 (0.3%) Native American, 749 (8.4%) Asian, 10 (0.1%) Pacific Islander, 154 (1.7%) from other races, and 386 (4.4%) from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 686 persons (7.7%). The Census reported that 8,860 people (99.9% of the population) lived in households, 6 (0.1%) lived in non-institutionalized group quarters, and 0 (0%) were institutionalized.

Marina del Rey is in the Los Angeles Unified School District, although there are no schools in the area proper. As of 2009 Steve Zimmer represents the district. Students from Marina del Rey attend Coeur d’Alene Avenue Elementary School, Marina del Rey Middle School, and Venice High School. The County of Los Angeles Public Library operates the Lloyd Taber-Marina del Rey Library. The library has a nautical collection to serve small boaters in the area.
