Coral Gables Venetian Pool
The Venetian Pool is another gem given to Coral Gables by George Merrick. The pool was originally named the “Venetian Casino” when it first opened in 1923. It was formed out of an existing coral rock quarry. The beautiful Mediterranean style pool has two towers that look out over Coral Gables. Early on, the site was popular with many celebrities. Orchestras would even play in the bottom of the emptied pool on special occasions. The water that fills the pool comes from an underground aquifer. The Venetian Pool is also the only pool in the nation to be included in the National Register of Historic Places.
