Marina was founded by William Locke-Paddon in 1918 who sold 5 acre plots at $75 per acre. Marina is the Spanish word for "seacoast" or "shore". Marina is quickly becoming a destination for weary travelers with hotels, an RV park near the Marina State Beach and restaurants nearby. The Monterey Coastal Bike Path runs through Marina connecting the communities of Castroville Fort Ord and the Monterey Peninsula. Recently Marina has incorporated a portion of the old adjacent and decommissioned military base "Fort Ord." Marinas airport offers sky diving for the brave. The Marina Locke-Paddon Park is a wetland Park with lots of birds.
