Venice Gardens Reviews

2 reviews
I have lived in Venice Gardens for fifteen years. The area is beautiful and relatively quiet for the most part. I live across the street from the Venice Civic Center. Many people host special events there. My favorite part is taking advantage of the field across the street. Everyday I utilize it because my boyfriend and I walk our two Siberian Huskies. Having an open field allows us to play catch with the dogs. This is also a wonderful neighborhood to raise a family. My only complaint is that the cost of living. It is highly populated with older folks.

Small and ever growing. Plenty to do here and see. Various cultures and all kinds of people reside here. Only thing like to see change would be hire wages for the work force.
