"Today, on April 15, the city of Los Angeles started cleaning up the handball courts homeless encampments in Venice Beach, California. They came with the big Caterpillar and cleaned out each handball court. Now they have to disinfect the handball court and then it will be repainted."

"An early morning fight between homeless encampment residents on the world famous Venice Beach Boardwalk. Police did not respond, no arrests made."


Earlier this month, the city put up notices that the homeless encampments will be cleaned out of the Venice Hand Ball Courts on April 15th. And these photos from @VeniceIntel taken today shows that the area is actually being cleaned up.





At 3.4 square miles, Venice, California is a small town with an impossibly large footprint on the world. For more than 100 years, Venice has been a multi-cultural mecca for creativity, diversity, and personal expression.

However, in this time of rapid change, the people, stories, and events that have made Venice, California a global destination are at risk of being forgotten.

The Venice Heritage Museum is an opportunity to preserve and celebrate over a century's worth of stories, collections, and archives from one of America’s most legendary cities—Venice, California.

Our museum campus will serve as a common ground and a town square for all of Venice's residents and the millions of tourists who visit each year, located in Venice-of-America Centennial Park just west of Abbot Kinney Blvd and adjacent to the Venice-Abbot Kinney Memorial Branch Library along the gateway to Venice.

Help bring the first-ever museum for Venice to life! Support our campaign to fund the first phase of the project by May 18, 2021: www.tinyurl.com/veniceheritage


"Homeless encampments have take over the world famous Venice Beach Boardwalk. Fights are an all day every day occurrence now. This once beautiful tourist destination is being rapidly destroyed by the failed policies of local politicians."


Venice Beach is accessible to ALL thanks to thenew access mat!

Wheelchair users & others with difficulty crossing the sand can now easily access the water’s edge (unless the city's most hated surf school, Kapowui, blocks off the handicap parking with thier vehicles and wavestorms like they do in Santa Monica).



The Department of Beaches and Harbors installed access mats at Venice Beach. These mats are made of a synthetic mesh that provides a firmer surface for those who need it to cross the sand, such as people who use wheelchairs or other mobility aids. No special equipment is required.

"Today I visit the world famous Muscle Beach in Santa Monica, where it all started. Then I went to Venice, I sadly have to report that the gym is gone. Most of the outside activities are still closed down. I matched up pictures of Arnold Schwarzenegger when he first came to Venice Beach. After this, I visit the famous Gold's Gym, and I also saw all the homeless encampments around Gol'ds Gym in Venice."

The Venice Pride Flag Lifeguard tower gets a fresh coat of paint and a bit of a facelift just in time for Pride Month.

The tower, located North of the skate park at the end of Brooks Ave was built and then unveiled on June 1st, 2017 by Venice Pride, a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the needs of the LGBTQ+ community and painted by Venice Pride board members.

Over the years the once bright and vibrant lifeguard tower began to fade due to weather and lack of upkeep.



Thanks to the efforts of Richard Martinez and his crew from Beaches and Harbors Los Angeles County the tower has been restored to its original glory just in time for this years Pride Month in June.

"Last week I finally got my 100,000 YouTube Subscribers Silver Play Button. I went to Venice Beach and unboxed the play button. It was an awesome feeling to finally hold the silver play button in my hand. I was so surprised how fast I got so many subscribers. Thank you very much everybody, without you this would not be possible. Thanks from German in Venice."

The Venice Breakwater is firing on this first day of April!


This past Sunday, just after 6PM, a crowd of people on the Venice Boardwalk witnessed a man molesting a female child in broad daylight.

The child appeared to be 3 years old or possibly younger, according to the reports, which also state the man was mildly intoxicated, but knew what he was doing.

It took over a dozen calls to 911 and about 15 minutes before police arrived. Thankfully, some witnesses were able to follow the man as he was trying to flee with the child. And they were able to lead the police to him.

He was arrested, as many of the witnesses had video and photos to show the authorities of his disgusting sexual assault of a child.

Supposedly, he told the police he was her father, and that the mother lived elsewhere.

The child is now with other family members and did received medical care.

A more detailed report of this can be found at Reports of Child Assault on Venice Beach Boardwalk in Broad Daylight.

*No one from Shacked witnessed this event, this scumbag would have had to be transported in an ambulance, not a cop car if we did. We are reporting this from other sources, as linked above*


Photo from Allan Parsons this weekend show the homeless tents are on the sand again in Venice.



Another homeless encampment fire Friday morning. Right outside of Gold's Gym in Venice. This is the 4th homeless Encampment fire in Venice this week.

In today's video, German in Venice spots that singer Rihanna and gets hassled by her too-stupid-to-do-his-job-properly bodygaurd for filming her. We see a lot of "celebs" in Venice with their bodygaurds, but Rihanna's is not only an asshole, but he has got to be one of the most dumbest ones we witnessed.

"Today Rihanna came to Venice Beach to bike ride and shop," says German in Venice, "I followed her with my camera and her bodyguards tried a couple times to stop me from filming her and stop following her around. It seemed like it didn’t really bother Rihanna because I kept my distance."
