<p>Reopened in December 2005, Virginia Avenue Park is a quick stroll from Santa Monica College, and only a few blocks away from the 10 Freeway. It offers numerous traditional and non-traditional park amenities, as well as community meeting areas. However, the park's most popular attraction is the Farmers Market, which it hosts every Saturday from 8am to 1pm.</p>
<p>The Thelma Terry Building, located on the northwest side of the park, houses a multi-purpose room, as well as a pair of classrooms designated for senior adults and a homework-assistance program. Meanwhile, the Teen Center has a kitchen, a computer workshop and two classrooms for art activities; and The Patio hosts community meetings and also features a classroom where an infant and family program is held.</p> <p>On the southeast corner of the park is the Park Center, where the Administrative Office, a Santa Monica Police sub-station, a conference room, a Community Room, a Chrysalis office and two fitness gyms are headquartered. Boxing and martial-arts activities are held in the latter room, which also contains weight equipment.</p> <p>Finally, Virginia Avenue Park also includes two lighted basketball courts, and a Splash Pad where children cool each off with stationary water cannons in the summertime. Fires in the park are permitted only for barbecues.</p>
