Started by a legislative act in 1929 to develop 11,000 feet of ocean front, Mission Bay Park was planned to be the center recreational attraction of Southern California. Among the planned projects were a refuge, feeding station, marine zoo, Naval annex, aquatic stadium and bay shore park area. Today the aquatic playground plays host to thousands of families in search of fun in the sun. Plans for continued dredging and a dream of connecting Mission Bay with San Diego Bay with a waterway are still discussed by civic leaders periodically.
