Earned Venice national recognition

This wonderful linear park provides bike and walking trail from one end of the island to the other. Part of what earned Venice the designation as a "Bicycle Friendly" city.

This trail along the inner coastal waterway was perfect for a bike-lunch-beach day. There is ample parking near Caspersen Beach. We rode a few miles north (on west trail) and locked bikes at historic Old Venice. Trail is nice and flat! Enjoyed SPECTACULAR lunch at Trattoria outdoor cafe and ice cream at Venice Ave Creamery. WATCH OUT, STAY ON TRAIL,... More

We found this waterway trail one day when I was looking for a new place to take the dogs out for a walk. Venice is a busy little town with heavy traffic being the biggest complaint, especially during the winter snowbird season. Here, right in the middle of town, there is NO traffic! It is beautiful, and we enjoy the... More

Along the Inter-coastal channel. I believe it is handicapped accessible. There are bicyclists however they are courteous. You can go for as short or as long a walk as you want to.

Nice, clean open area for families, recreation and nature. Nice for get-togethers, too. I enjoy watching the boats on the waterway a lot.

Went with a friend Easter night. Lots of people watching the boats and dolphins. Several people fishing along the walkways. Saw a couple of fish being caught and a great sunset.

This is a paved trail along both sides of the canal that separates Venice Beach from the rest of Venice. Great for biking, walking, running and roller blading. It has some benches and picnic tables in the shade.

This is a great trail. Having said that, you MUST put your blades on AT the trail, not in station parking lot. Better trail for biking or walking. Lots of wild life. Recommend !!

What a beautiful trail. We hiked from the bridge on East Venice Avenue and worked our way down to Shamrock Park. Lots of opportunities to take pictures of nature ... the trees, butterflies, birds, the canal. This trail is best explored on a bike, since it connects on the Legacy Trail to the north, which is around 16 kms one... More
