This public pool, called Venetian pool, is probably one of the biggest attractions in Coral Gables and maybe one of the reasons why families come here. The story of this pool is unique. The pool was created in place where coral rock quarry used to be. The design of the pool, grottos and the bridge was modeled after Venetian designs. Even though pool is public - it is not free. The palce gets really busy on weekends but it is clean, nicely decorated and fun. It has been in operation for more than 80 years now, and had been thru several major upgrades. Definitely something to check out especially if you have kids.
