About Discovery Bay

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.

Boaters can navigate from Discovery Bay to the San Francisco Bay, enabling residents to literally go anywhere in the world from their backyard.  Whether you enjoy fishing, waterskiing, wakeboarding, or simply exploring the California Delta, there is no shortage of things to do here.  Discovery Bay enjoys a wonderful spectrum of seasonal climates including everything from warm summers to rainy winters. 

Discovery Bay is no longer limited to simply Delta waterfront homes; it has developed into a community that provides something for everyone.   Discovery Bay offers gated lakefront homes as well as Country Club homes located on a world-class golf course.  Recent additions include the 2 gated communities of Lakeshore and The Lakes, as well as nearby Ravenswood, a community planned around a new public park. 

Discovery Bay is an unincorporated community and is officially known as the Town of Discovery Bay.  We operate under a Community Services District (CSD) form of government that is governed by a 5-member elected Board of Directors. The Town provides municipal water treatment and distribution as well as wastewater collection, transmission and treatment.  The District also provides parks and landscaping, and recreation services.  District Board Meetings are held @ 7:00 p.m. on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month at the town office, located at 1800 Willow Lake Road. Residents are encouraged to attend these meetings - to get involved and stay informed about the issues and opportunities facing the Town of Discovery Bay CSD.
