Charlestown Outdoor Community Swimming Pool, Co. Mayo
Amongst the Dulux Let’s Colour Project’s selected in 2011 was the Charlestown Outdoor Community Swimming Pool at Lowpark. Locals decided to make the space a lot more welcoming and playful by painting the grey boundary walls to the pool. Over the August bank holiday weekend parents and children from the community got together to practice their painting skills and bring the project to life.
According to Charlestown Swimming Pool PRO, Maureen McEntire, “The Charlestown Outdoor Swimming Pool is just a great resource for children and parents locally. We’ve had great ideas about re-painting it to make to a little brighter and more ocean-like even when being used on the grey summer days. The Autumn bank holiday saw lots of people come out to help..”
