Pool Expansion Update!
Temporary entrance and changing rooms from Monday 19 October.
Although work was delayed through the Level 4 lockdown period, we were able to catch up some time at Level 3, which means the pools will not have to close at all as originally planned. This new sped up work programme allows us to catch up the remaining time lost over the Level 4 lockdown while always having a pool available for swimming.
The expansion will see a new 10-lane, 25-metre pool built, greatly increasing the existing capacity, with more recreational lane swimming and learn to swim space and allow more options for water sports and spectator space. The full expansion will also add recreation and community spaces. We appreciate your understanding and patience during this time while we work to bring you an amazing new complex!

Pool Alone Policy
As per Water Safety NZ and NZ Recreation Association guidelines, we would like to remind families about the Pool Alone policy.
- Under five year olds must have a swimming adult with them and be supervised within arms reach at all times. Ratio: one adult to two children under the age of five.
- Children under eight years old are not permitted in any pools unless actively supervised by a caregiver over the age of 16 at all times.
Actively supervising means watching your child at all times, and being able to provide immediate assistance.
