Things To Do

In Marina

Marina Equestrian Center

Horseback Riding

The Marina Equestrian Center is a public park owned by the City of Marina, under the auspices of the National Park Service, and operated by the non-profit Marina Equestrian Association.

The center offers self-care boarding, an economical and affordable alternative to full care – and has two arenas, a roundpen, washracks with both hot and cold water, storage rooms for hay and tack, 30 pastures for turning horses out, trailer park, and more. There is easy access to a trail system covering 5000 acres of land managed by BLM Fort Ord Public Land.

Vince DiMaggio Park

Vince DiMaggio Park is complete with a wide field of grass, perfect for yoga, and a play structure under some nice shady trees. Bring your dog for a game of fetch or host your next birthday party here.

Along the dirt path you can find some benches, suitable for practicing your favorite instrument or having a picnic with friends. Enjoy the sound of leaves rustling in the breeze or bring a speaker to play your favorite songs!

Locke Paddon Park

Locke Paddon Park is home to dragonflies, butterflies, bunnies, birds and much more wildlife of Marina. Around the pond there is a walking/biking trail and a small bridge to get a better view of the tall cattails. There is a playground for little ones and benches to relax!

Robert Mast Marina Rotary Park

Robert Mast Marina Rotary Park is located in a friendly neighborhood down the street from Los Arboles Middle School. This is the perfect park to spend your next sunny day working up a sweat playing sports.

At this park you can find a baseball field, frisbee golf targets and tennis courts as well as a path around the entire field perfect for a stroll or run! The nearby teen center has basketball hoops and a skatepark for kids to enjoy as well!

Skydive Monterey Bay
Athletes, travelers and adventurers from across the world visit our best drop zone on the West Coast. Every day, jump ‘The World’s Highest Tandem Skydive’ from 18,000′, with our professional, kind, expert Skydiving Team, above the Pacific Ocean.

Free fall begins over Monterey Bay. While in flight you can see as far north as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Your eyes will capture sights of the Bay Bridge of Oakland. Though you may decide to follow the California Pacific Coast Highway from Half Moon Bay to Santa Cruz. Another fun landmark is the stacks of Moss Landing; or perhaps down the valley from Fresno to San Jose.

Eat Good
Diverse Cuisine
Marina has been ranked #20 out of the Most Diverse Places to Live in California according to With that diversity comes a diverse selection of great restaurants and cafe’s.

Maybe you’re in the mood for a carnita burrito but your friend feels like a teriyaki bowl. You can head on over to El Rancho Market for an authentic mexican burrito and then a quick dash over to Teriyaki Madness for your teriyaki bowl fix, and everyone’s happy. Looking to hangout at a good old fashioned English pub, then check out English Ales Brewery where they also produce the quality British beers for distribution.
