The main feature of the neighborhood is a small canal, which is, as the name of the neighborhood suggests, used as a marina. The canal is connected to the sea, and there are numerous businesses and residences in the district, making it an ideal place to live in.
Marina is not controlled by any gang, although surrounding districts like Santa Maria Beach and Verona Beach have prominent gang activity. The commercial districts of Vinewood, Market, and Rodeo also envelop the area. It's based on Marina del Rey and Venice Canals.
