about Venetian Pool:
The pool holds 820,000 gallons of water and is fed with cool spring water daily. In the summer months, the pool is drained and refilled daily. The ecologically minded needn't worry; in 1988 a system was devised in which water is filtered back into the aquifer for reuse. This is the reason for the age limit on admittance. Non-toilet trained children could easily contaminate this fresh water pool.
The facility has two swimming areas separated by a bridge. The wading area is 2 feet deep, and perfect for younger swimmers. The main pool varies from 3 to 8 feet deep. Whenever the pool is open there are 2 lifeguards on duty, keeping a close eye on the various swimming areas.
Adjacent to the pool is a small man-made beach, and a palm-fringed island accessed over a cobblestone bridge. These, along with the caves and waterfalls, make for a wonderful afternoon of fantasy play!
Food may not be brought in, but The Cafe at Venetian Pool offers a wide variety of food that is a step above the average concession stand.
