The Venetian Pool is a massive, iconic, and historic swimming pool in Coral Gables that has its own aquifer. It contains 820,000 gallons of fresh spring water, making it naturally refreshing, and it boasts breathtaking scenery as well.

Everyone can find fun at this pool, thanks to its size and varying depths. Visitors can relax in the shallows or swim in the deep end.
