The old community swimming pool was taken over by the Dumfries House Trust after the 2016 season and totally refurbished. Now pleasantly unrecognisable, reopening in July 2017. A definite Garnet in the crown of the Prince Charles, who was behind the revamp.

We visited not long after the pool opened and were suitably impressed. Great staff, clean facilities and a super outdoor pool. We attended the kids float session and it was great fun. Prices are reasonable too. My 9 year old son loves it.

Great visit to the newly refurbished New Cumnock pool. It's lovely and clean with good facilities. Friendly, helpful staff. Lots of kids enjoying the water but plenty of space in the swimming lane for us.

Brilliant pool. Outdoor heated and spotless. Will definitely return. Cash only though on entrance, I don't know if this is the norm or if there was a fault with carx machine? £6 for 3 of us and there didn't seem to be a time limit.

The swimming pool is not owned or operated by the Council......there are no plans to close it for the winter months......no doubt it would happen if the weather became extreme.....but plans are......leave it and see
