The park is named for Merle Graser, who was Mayor of Venice from 1993-98. His family donated the fountain, including the marble dolphins that were carved in Italy from stone mined in Asia and shipped to the United States specifically for this project. This park is located on Barcelona Ave. at The Esplanade, across from the public beach. It allows for overflow parking for the beach.
