Venetian Pool in Coral Gables (part deux)


Lots of people have asked me to post Venetian Pool again. Well, we are going now. It is on a Sunday because I like going on Sundays.I like to get there at 10 am because parking is easier, there is no one there so you feel like you have the place to yourself and we can commandeer a good location under a tree or two to put our stuff and lounge chairs. the lounge chair rental is $5.00 and totally worth it. It's okay to bring in a bag with a sandwich or two and something to drink just be discreet. No coolers. They have showers and bathrooms for changing in and out of bathing suits. Bring a towel. The water is around 75 degrees and although it is cold when you jump in you get used to it pretty quick.

Warning: Last time we were there the park closed at 1pm because of capacity. Capacity is determined by the amount of lifeguards on duty at the time. It is imperative that you arrive at 10am to ensure that you get in. If you want to get there later there are no guarantees that you will get in. It would suck that you drive 75 miles to Coral Gables and not be able to get in to the pool.

Since the event is in Coral Gables, please let me know if you want to carpool. We can determine a meeting location if there is enough interest and cars that can assist in carpooling.

Let me know.Big Dave

    A great day to go swimming in a freshwater pool, having to wait a bit made it worthwhile.
