The upgraded Ottrey Park in Myalup will soon get a touch of colour with a mural to brighten up the western wall of the public toilet block.

Harvey Shire Council approved the proposal of the Myalup Community Association for the 3.6m by 2.4m artwork at its last meeting and artist in residence Graeme McPherson will donate his time to design and paint the community project.

Mr McPherson suggested an ocean scene with dolphins and both the association and council were happy with his sketches.

The mural will be painted on three steel sheets and Mr McPherson hopes to have it completed during the summer holidays.

“When I think of Myalup, I think of the ocean, dolphins and seagulls,” he said.

“It is a typical scene and dolphins can be seen most mornings during summer.

“When the sun goes down over the ocean, it is quite spectacular and holidaymakers often come to the beach to watch it.

“As a Myalup resident I am happy to volunteer for a community project.”

Harvey shire president Tania Jackson said the community had come up with the idea for the facility. The estimated cost of $2100 will be paid from the remaining balance of the Ottrey Park upgrade project.
