The first of five renourishments to take place over the next 50 years at Venice Beach was completed in 2005. The Army Corps of Engineers project added between 130 - 160 feet of sand seaward. Click here for the link to the beach renourishment PDF

The original beach nourishment took place in two phases in 1994 and 1996. The federally funded beach project added 250 feet of sand seaward from the north jetty to south of the Municipal Fishing Pier with the intention of having 150 feet left above water after the first several storms came through.

Some of that sand went under water as was hoped, to break wave action against the shoreline. Other sand has been washed away from the system.

Amenities: Parking, food concession, shelter, two sand volleyball courts, picnic area and boardwalks.
