Discovery Bay was established in the early 1970's as a mostly weekend and summer resort community. Today, Discovery Bay has evolved into a thriving year-round home for over 17,000 residents who enjoy small-town living against the backdrop of over 1200 miles of Delta waterway. Currently boasting a full-service marina, 3 public schools and 1 private school, 2 shopping centers and a business park, Discovery Bay now has the infrastructure needed to support residents within their own community as well as serve those who travel to the area to enjoy the splendor of the Delta.
