A vintage neighborhood in a vintage Gulf Coast town, Venice Gardens is a serene and secure community for active older adults and first-time homebuyers. Venice Gardens is not a retirement or 55+ community, and the community has no deed restrictions. A charming community with a vintage, old-Florida feel, Venice Gardens is a beautiful compilation of well-maintained, Florida ranch homes, picturesque lakes, and wildlife at home in their natural habitat. Beautiful renovations grace many of the homes and land is large enough to enjoy entertaining and outdoor activities. Venice Gardens' residential streets curve around a series of glittering ponds, creating cul-de-sacs and providing many residents with waterfront views. Many residents enjoy affordable homes surrounded by a nice tropical garden, and many of them are facing lakes, ponds or canals. You can fish in your backyard when you have a home on the water, or if you own a little fishing or paddle boat you can tour the chain of lakes.

The boundaries of Venice Gardens start with the Tamiami Trail in the west, Jacaranda Boulevard to the east, and Center Road to the north.
