Swimmers and aquatic enthusiasts in Donnybrook made a splash in their local pool last week when it re-opened its doors after being closed for five weeks due to refurbishments.

The popular swimming spot was closed last month as works commenced to resurface the pool after the integrity of the internal surface began to breakdown and deteriorate.

Funded by the Donnybrook-Balingup Shire Council, the renovations included the upgrade of the wet and dry facilities and the installation of a UV light water treatment unit.

Both the pool and entry to the facility were painted with a new palette of colours, further adding to improvements to the area.

Shire president Brian Piesse said the council recognised the facility was an important part of the community.

Our Shire supports a healthy, safe and inclusive environment and maintaining our recreation facilities are an important part of this,

Cr Piesse said.

The Donnybrook Pool opened to the public in 1994 after residents in the area recognised a need in the community to have their own pool in town.

Open all year round, the indoor heated pool is used for the centre’s Learn to Swim program, Deep-water Aqua group fitness classes, rehabilitation, lap swimming and general recreation.
