A Corner in Venice celebrates its Grand Opening

May 05, 2010 by Lisa Newton

Last Sunday, the new Labyrinth Park at the corner of San Juan at 6th Street in Venice had its Grand Opening. It’s amazing to watch a venture transform from a beginning, middle, and end—even more so when it’s a grass-roots community project.

With the help of the community– this small patch of brown went to green in a short period of time.

Here’s the before Photo:

And here’s the After Photo!

For the Bethel Tabernacle Church of God in Christ, with a fresh coat of paint, new landscaping and freshly planted grass, and a cool circular labyrinth is a wonderful achievement. I was able to cover the initiative from beginning to completion, and the end result is one of success–as the neighborhood and the Church’s patrons now have a park where there once was barrenness.

In the photo above, the people who attended its Grand Opening are walking around the labyrinth for the “Walk as One at 1.”

That concept is meant to achieve the effect of a rolling wave of a labyrinth walking as the earth turns. It’s amazing what happens when one person spearheads an effort–in this case, Robin Munez was the “Green” instigator, and the church’s parish, the neighborhood, and Venice will be forever grateful.

I know I’m lucky to have played my small part in just reporting about it. When Travelin’ Local, sometimes being in the right place at the right time means everything.
