City of Newport Beach Marina Park Project Begins

The long anticipated Marina Park Project is finally underway.

The Park Design will dramatically improve both physical and visual access to the Bay. This “Window on the Bay” will open up over 1100 linear feet of waterfront area to view, providing an extended view to the bay from the main thoroughfare, Balboa Boulevard. The site plan includes:

  • Enhanced recreational access to the bay with facilities for sailing instruction including docks and slips,
  • New and improved rest rooms for beach visitors
  • Improvements to the existing portage vessel launch area located at where 18th Street intersects the beach.
  • A new visiting vessel marina providing full service slips for travelling boaters.
  • The Park will feature an extensive children’s play area geared to children of all ages, as well as an area for water play using recirculating treated water with interactive sprays, jets and other features.
  • The park includes two tennis courts, as well as a pair of basketball half courts.
  • The marina occupies the end of the beach nearest the American Legion, but additional beach area has been provided in the center of the park.
  • The design also provides a location for the construction of a new Girl Scout House to replace the existing one located along the Balboa Boulevard frontage.
  • Parking for 154 cars will be provided on site.
