CicLAvia - Culver City Meets Venice Sunday, March 26
CicLAvia temporarily opens streets across Los Angeles county to all Angelenos to bike, walk, skate, dance, and play (that means: NO CARS). Free to the public, the event turns the streets into a park space that connects diverse portions of the city. Unfortunately, this means it will be more difficult than usual to drive to Mar Vista Animal Medical Center that day.
We will be OPEN during CicLAvia.
This event starts in Culver City on Washington Blvd., goes through Washington Place, up Centinella to Venice Blvd, then on to the beach. Normally on Sunday, the Mar Vista Farmer's Market closes Grand View Blvd. to cars from Venice Blvd. to our driveway. This means (on every usual Sunday) cars must come up Grand View from Washington Place in order to get to our parking lot, or, it is also possible to get to our parking lot from the alley that runs off of Pacific Ave.
During CicLAvia, Washington Pl. will be closed off to cars, which means the entirety of Grand View from Venice Blvd. to Washington Pl. will be blocked to traffic. The only way to drive to our parking lot will be through the alley.
To get there, you must drive south on Inglewood Blvd. from Venice Blvd. and make a right turn onto Pacific Ave. (one short block south of Venice Blvd., south of the Mar Vista Library). You must come from Venice Blvd. because Inglewood will be blocked across Washington Pl. by CicLAvia. CicLAvia has a street crossing over Washington Pl. at McLaughlin if you are coming from the south, and then you can make a left onto Venice Blvd., go west one street light and make the left turn onto Inglewood, then a right, after one short block, onto Pacific. As you drive west on Pacific, pass Keeshen Dr., and you will see a barricade in the center of the road blocking traffic to the Farmer's Market. Exactly at that barrier (or just after that barrier, depending where they place it), you can make a left turn into the alley, just before the Christian church. The alley seems to dead-end at the back of Stock Lumber, but actually makes an abrupt right turn. Make the right turn and keep following the alley past the other side of the Christian Church, and Mar Vista Animal Medical Center will be on your right, just before Grand View Blvd. and the Farmer's Market.
Remember to Start Up Your Pet's Flea Control
NOW THAT SPRING IS HERE... don't forget to re-start your regular flea treatment. Weather in Southern California can be warm and sunny any time of year but if you tend to discontinue flea treatments in the Winter, it is time to begin. Don't wait until you see fleas. Start early so they don't establish. If you need help selecting a product, we are here to help.
