The City of Venice is pleased to announce that the restrooms in Centennial Park on West Venice Avenue have reopened! The project included a complete demolition inside the building, with new floors, toilets, fixtures, partitions, sinks, and upgraded plumbing. The outside of the building and the roof were cleaned and power-washed.
Additionally, the City’s Public Works Department saved money on the project by doing some of the work in-house.
