The Venice Pier Project’s main objective is to act as guardian and watchdog for the Venice Fishing Pier in Venice Beach, CA.
Its primary concerns include the integrity of the Pier itself and the continued maintenance of the Pier’s structure, the quality of surrounding waters and bottom conditions, and the prevention of commercial inroads and commercial interests of any kind on the Pier.
The VPP hopes to ensure that the Pier is alive and well for future generations. It also reaches out to, and works with, both public and private entities to guarantee the health and survival of this unique structure. The VPP intends to see that the Pier is safe, friendly, and accommodating to all – local fishermen, joggers and walkers, tourists, classes, artists, readers, thinkers, sunset watchers, star gazers (until 2:00 AM), and poets.
The VPP encourages free, permitted, events on the Pier and promotes gatherings of all ages, interests, disciplines, and creeds.
