Venetian Pool

 Venetian Pool
One of the outstanding treasures of  Coral Gables Parks, once the site of a rock quarry, was designed in Mediterranean Revival style by Phineas E. Paist to resemble a natural lagoon in a Venetian setting. Located at 2701 DeSoto Boulevard four blocks south of Coral Way on Granada.

Venetian Pool
Perhaps the only swimming pool anywhere to be included in the National Register of Historic Places. Certainly it is the only swimming pool of its kind with its vine-covered loggias, shady porticos, spanish fountain, three-story observation towers and cascading waterfalls that spill into a free-form lagoon complete with coral rock caves and palm-fringed island. Even now, Venetian Pool  would still put a twinkle in George Merrick's eye, as it did so many years ago.

Fed by underground artesian wells, Venetian Pool was once a quarry pit, its only value being limestone it produced for the construction of that time. Through the creative efforts of Merrick's artist-uncle Denman Fink, and architect Phineas Paist, this eyesore was transformed in 1924 to what was then called Venetian Casino.
