One of the newest parks in the City, this property is owned by TRW, which is located adjacent to the property, and is leased to the City. Encompassing just over 7.5 acres, this park is a favorite spot for young children's birthday parties and family gatherings. Facilities in the park include a full-size baseball field, a turf soccer field, two outdoor, state-of-the-art basketball courts, an exercise area, picnic tables, children's play areas and a small recreation activity building. The building is used for classes, meetings and social gatherings. The park also includes a four-court indoor racquetball building open to the public and privately operated by Pay-N-Play Company of America.
It also has a covered, non-reservable structure which can be used for picnicking or recreation. An adjacent picnic area can accommodate about 50 people and includes eight picnic tables and three barbecues. Restrooms and drinking fountains are also available in this park. Ample parking is available in a lot which borders the site along Marine Avenue.

The Marine Avenue Skate Spot was officially opening to the public on Saturday, March 18th after it was initially proposed 16 years ago.
Dating back to 2013, Spohn Ranch helped the City of Manhattan Beach analyze sites, host public input meetings and conduct a skate spot feasibility study. Open space within City limits was limited, making the process challenging, but the City ultimately landed on Marine Avenue Park as the designated home for their first Skate Spot.
The Skate Spot is located in the northeast corner of Marine Avenue Park, just past the baseball diamond’s outfield and adjacent to Manhattan Beach Studios.
The 6,000 square foot concrete Skate Spot will consist of state-of-the-art terrain. Transition elements will line the perimeter of the skate spot and feed a street section in the center with stairs, rails and ledges.
