Despite summer storms and some cooler days, the Portland Olympic community owned pool has been drawing visitors from far and wide this season.
The pool which is owned and operated by the community will once again be hosting a free entry on Australia Day public holiday, providing entertainment, and a gold coin donation BBQ.
The pool was originally gifted to the town by The Portland cement Works and was built by the townspeople as a asset for future generations to enjoy and nearly 60 years later, that is still the case.
The new canteen give visitors options for food at the pool and every dollar through the gate goes back into the pool, although more is needed to upgrade critical pool infrastructure in the coming years.
The best way to support the pool is to come on out for a fun day out, bring your friends and family and show them what a great community pool is really like.
