Venice Parks and Beaches

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

Venice has more than 30 parks ranging in size from tiny pocket parks to the beach along the Gulf of Mexico. Some of the more unique parks include Paw Park, where dogs may romp on the beach, and Venetian Waterway Park, where people may bike and hike on a 5-mile stretch along both sides the Intracoastal Waterway. Please enjoy our parks and beaches while maintaining social distancing guidelines.

Restoration work at Fountain Park was completed in September 2019. The City Public Works Department gave the park a complete refurbishment, including replacement of the old, corroded cast-iron fountain with a brand-new aluminum fountain. The original art piece on top has been professionally restored and placed back on the fountain top.

Additional work within the park included replacement of the old paver bricks with bonded aggregate, decorative tile within the fountain pool, new LED light fixtures in the fountain, replacement of the fountain pumps and controls, painting and LED conversions for the park light poles, and new flowers that were installed with the help of the Venice Area Beautification Inc. (VABI) Bloom Team. 

The City encourages residents and visitors alike to come enjoy the new look of this downtown district park!

Located at the intersection of three streets: Ponce De Leon Avenue, Miami Avenue and Nokomis Avenue.
