This historic U.S. public swimming pool located in Coral Gables, Florida was completed in 1924 and designed by Phineas Paist with Denman Fink. This is the largest freshwater pool in the U.S. which occupies a shallow quarry that displaces near 820,000 U.S. gallons of fresh water daily from artesian wells. The pools depth ranges from four feet to over eight feet with a two-foot kiddy pool near the lifeguard station. A walking path surrounds the entire complex. In 1989 the pool received a huge historical restoration and another renovation in 2008-2009. Since then it has re-opened to the public.
