Del Rey Lagoon Park in Playa del Rey has a set of basketball courts near the beach making for great weather and less sweat when you play a challenging game with friends or strangers.
Surrounded by mature palm and shade trees, there's a parking lot (often full) near the basketball courts and there are also many parallel parking spaces that line the street going into the park. A more expensive pay parking lot a few blocks away sits at the river jetty. It has pay a pay station, so you more often can find parking there.
The courts are set in a valley with three and four story houses on the bluffs to the east, and small sand dunes to the Pacific Ocean to the west. The beach is just steps from the basketball courts, that are part of a neighborhood park containing a kids playground, baseball diamond, lagoon and picnic tables.
