In the 1920s Denman Dink transformed this limestone quarry into a pool with a waterfall, an area for kids and an area for adults.
The water in this pool comes from a spring and is drained daily.
In addition to the swimming facilities there is a snack bar (you cannot bring outside food into the Venetian Pool) and lockers.
Swimming lessons are also offered here.
The Venetian Pool is best known for having Esther Williams and Johnny Weissmuller (the silver screen’s first Tarzan) swim here.
