This beautiful lakeside venue boasts a quaint gazebo, a ski beach, a large pool with bathhouse, picnic areas, BBQ grills, and access to 7 near-shore islands. The gazebo is available for rental on special occasions. This beautifully landscaped public park features a walking bridge perfect for watching the Fourth of July fireworks display, hosted at the park, or simply admiring the placid waters of Lake Harris.
Adjacent to the Venetian Gardens is the Venetian Cove Marina which accesses Lake Harris. The marina offers boat storage areas, a fueling station, rest rooms, and food and supplies. Both wet and dry slip storage areas are available for rent. Located on Lake Harris, just off of the Venetian Gardens and marina, is Monkey Island which is accessible only by water. This beautiful destination features a picnic shelter, perfect for a family lunch on the lake.
Also attached to the Venetian Gardens and marina is the Venetian Gardens Trail which allows biking and hiking access along Canal Street. For more information about visiting the park, renting the venue for an event, using the marina or other questions, please visit the City of Leesburg’s Parks and Recreation website.
