I want to make a natural pool, I'm wondering if anyone has seen or has one that they incorporate carnivorous plants in. Which CP do you think would be best suit for that type of environment?

Do you mean pool or bog garden. Pools have high mineral content, salt, or chlorine.

The idea is make a pool, where you can swim in, but using plants to filter the water instead of chemicals. In 2015, I think, UK made a public natural pool. https://youtu.be/3l9GbuVDJQM

That would be cool, but I don't think carnivorous plants would do well in it, as the pool is supposed to accumulate nutrients that the plants then filter out, and nutrients in the substrate/water isn't good for carnivorous plants and is often fatal.
