Overview of Venetian Pool
The Venetian Pool is a public swimming pool in Coral Gables. Carved from a rock quarry, this beautiful and unique pool dates back to the year of 1924. One of the only pool to be included in National Register of Historic Places, The Venetian Pool is also one of the largest freshwater pools in United States which is fed 820,000 gallons of spring water from an underground aquifer. The pool is beautified by two waterfalls that make for a picturesque backdrop. The man made caves in the swimming pool add up to the fun of swimming in the large water body.

Venetian Pool Reviews & Ratings
This place is amazing! After several beach days, the spring water at this pool was greatly welcomed by my family and I. They have a nice little cave too. No outside food is allowed, they sell snacks and finger foods. Better get there early, there is an occupancy limit and they do not let anyone in once it is reached. Family enjoyed this while we were in Miami vacationing! We will definitely pay this place a visit next time we are in Florida. I highly recommend this place.
Great pubic pool! Absolutely stunning! Swimming under the waterfalls was spectular! Grotto was amazing! Many lifeguards on duty checking every corner, they did a fantastic job. I was very happy to see that. The only reason I didn't give them five stars, is because at 4:10 we were kicked out of the pool! They close at 4:30, on the weekend. So instead of letting us swim till 4:30, they made us get out of the water early , so we could be out of the park by 4:30. I drove up from Key West, so I was very disappointed that it wasn't open till at least 6 on a weekend when daylight savings time is still in effect. You also cannot bring children under 3, we had a 4 year old. When we called we were not advised to this. I'm so lucky that he was able to get in. I would have been very upset if we drove all that way and couldn't go.
Love! Such a unique fun experience. Beautiful waterfalls, cool caves & fresh water. If your under 5'4 grab a free life vest so you can relax a little as water gets deeper in some areas & you don't want to tread water all day. If you have little ones be careful of the largest waterfall, the current is very strong & will push you down. Lots of lifeguards on duty all day.
As beautiful as it is clean! A great place to take family and/or friends from out of town to beat the heat and have some old-fashioned fun. The pool is rather large with varying depths to accommodate swimmers of all sizes and skill levels (2ft at minimum for the kiddos). There's also a sweet cove where you can walk or swim under some rocks. They also have complimentary life jackets for inexperienced swimmers. Finally, the food court is on-site serving a variety of food & drinks at reasonable prices.
