The Coral Gables Venetian Pool, which started off as just a rock pit when they were planning to build Coral Gables in the 1920s, underwent a six-month, $730,000 renovation that was completed just before summer of 2009. The Saturday following the Friday grand reopening welcomed 471 guests. The Venetian Pool renovation included new and improved bathrooms, walkways, fountains, roof tiles, concession area, patio furniture and wrought-iron gate.
This historic landmark offers waterfalls, loggias, porticos, coral caves and grottos, a sandy beach and an “island”. Due to its unique beauty, even before the Venetian Pool renovation, the pool has been a popular spot for photo and TV/Movie shoots. With about 80,000 visitors per year, the Venetian Pool is Miami’s top tourist destination. Get a look at the Venetian Pool renovation aftermath yourself. The Venetian Pool is located at 2701 de Soto Blvd. For more information, call 305-460-5306.
