In 1923, a public pool opened in Coral Gables. The pool’s location was originally a limestone quarry which supplied the raw material for many of the buildings in surrounding neighborhoods. The freshwater pool, designed by Denman Fink, has various architectural details giving it the feel of a Venetian hideaway.
