THE pond at Mill Lane in Donington is now crystal clear and sparkling after receiving a makeover thanks to the generosity of Donington Conservation Group.
Work including replacing worn-out fencing and seating has given the site a facelift and made it safer for the local community to enjoy.
There is also a rubbish bin in the guise of a penguin, which is proving very popular with younger visitors.
Liz Walker, who organised the refurbishment, said: “People who walk by the pond every day think it looks marvellous now.
“It’s a good thing for the community and something to be proud of, it has been brought back to how it used to be.”
