Venice Canals, Los Angeles

A few snap shots from the Venice Canal in California.

It is at the area of the S. Venice Blvd and Pacific Ave. I never knew of this place until it popped up on the GPS when I was in the neighborhood.

For sure this place is a heaven. Can't find anything similar in NY...

The area provided about a hour of pleasant walking in a lovely setting. The setting is pastoral, with lovely and original cottages, landscaped walkways, ducks and row boats. There are 14 small bridges that span the canal area, that give you the flexibility to hike as much or as little as you like.

According to the some websites I goggled afterward, the area was established around 1900 with a 20 miles network of canals and waterfront house. Today, there is only a few miles of waterway left.
