Excerpted Research Information: Marineland of the Pacific was a public oceanarium and tourist attraction located on the Palos Verdes Peninsula coast above the Pacific Ocean in Los Angeles County, California. Operating from 1954-1987 (following the overwhelming success of Marineland in Florida), and opening one year prior to Disneyland, it was best-known for its performing Orcas (“killer whales”). During the late 1970s and early 1980s, it became known as Hanna-Barbera’s Marineland. The master architect behind Marineland was William L. Pereira, an architect the caliber of Frank Lloyd Wright and so prestigious and respected in his profession as to have made the cover of Time Magazine on September 6, 1963.
