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.

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.
