History

The location was purchased in 1923 as part of the purchase that included Colorado Lagoon, Recreation Park, and Marine Stadium. Due to oil recovery events, a portion of the site stayed wetlands as part of the Marine Stadium connection to Colorado Lagoon, plus title disputes, the undeveloped site stayed.

In the 1960's, things changed in favor of the creation of Marina Vista Park. For the proposed Crosstown Freeway construction, the wetlands were subsidize, which lead the way for Title issues to be established with the 1968 Alamitos Bay Boundary Settlement Agreement between the City, private property owners, & State of California. In the late 1970's, oil operations consolidated on a 1.5-acre parcel between Boat House Lane and Loynes Drive allowing park development.

Finally, Marina Vista Park development began in 1982. The original design for Vista Park was modest; the facilities include a baseball field, and a soccer field. Vista Park benefited from the Los Angeles County Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond Act of 1992, & in 1992 Vista Park got a freestanding restroom building. In 1994, field improvements including dugouts, backstops, landscaping, fencing & night lighting for the baseball field.
