Post Date:12/02/2019 3:38 PM

As of Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2020, Humphris Park at the South Jetty entrance, 2000 Tarpon Center Dr., Venice, will be closed nightly to vehicles from 12 a.m. to 6 a.m., as per Ordinance No. 2019-39 approved and adopted by City Council on Dec. 10.  The park gates will be closed and locked nightly during this time period, so please plan to have all vehicles out of the park before 12 a.m. These new designated hours will make Humphris Park consistent with the operating hours of all other City of Venice beach parks. There will be posted “No Parking” and park hours signage, as well as temporary sign boards in place informing citizens of this change. A note that the Venice Fishing Pier is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week for anglers.
