Butchers pool is named after a Mr Butcher one of the first settlers in Reporoa. It was near his homestead and he and his family used it as a bath. He later ‘gifted’ this pool to the people of Reporoa and it has been upgraded during WW2 by persons who were ‘objectors’ as part of their work. It has since been greatly improved due to a substantial grant of money for the year 2000, and now comprises sealed walkways, toilets and changing rooms, etc. Please treat the pool with respect when visiting.
