  1. The Esther Williams pool still exists but is in bad need of renovation. The city of Winter Haven is applying for the historic areas of Cypress Gardens that are still intact inside Legoland to be put on the National Register of Historic Places. The hope is that would allow them to apply for grants to restore the pool.
