Our mission is to make the Venice area a more beautiful place to live, work, and play. We are the stewards of what makes our public spaces beautiful. We do so by building private/public partnerships to accomplish major public space improvements such as the Venetian Waterway Park, and by serving as an incubator for the realization of smaller projects, such as the improvements to John Nolen Park in historic downtown Venice. We strive to make our public spaces more accessible and attractive to all of the residents in and visitors to South County Sarasota, Florida, now and in generations to come. Our projects help to support a vibrant economy, encourage eco-tourism, provide environmental education, and enrich our recreational venues and historical character. We are a community enrichment organization
