Venetian Pool

Venetian Pool history and information

In 1923, a coral rock quarry was transformed into the Venetian pool by Coral Gables' founding father, George Merrick; together with his uncle and artist Denman Fink and architect Phineas Paist. This 820,000 gallon pool is fed with cool spring water daily, and features two waterfalls, coral caves and grottos. The buildings are Venetian-style architecture. Today, the pool is included in the National Register of Historic Places
