JohnNolenParksignWorld-renowned city planner John Nolen planned Venice in 1926 for the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, who were building the Gulf-side city to replenish its dwindling retirement funds. Fittingly, the park features signs posted along a trail telling the story of the rich history of the city (a Venice Area Beautification Inc. project).

The park at Menendez Street and Avenida Des Parques in the apartment district includes a handicap accessible playground with shade trees, picnic tables and trails leading to the Venice history signs.
