It took almost eight years for the Venetian Waterway Park to be completed. Unlike most large projects, this one was planned by a cadre of volunteers representing Venice Area Beautification, Inc. in partnership with the City of Venice engineering department.
Much of the land the VWP sets on is owned by the Army Corps of Engineers and had to be approved by them before construction could begin. Other property where permission had to be granted was Sarasota County, the City of Venice and Country Club Estates.
