Kaiapoi Aquatic Centre is closed
until Sunday July 23 for scheduled work to maintain its water heating and
filtration plant. The work, which is required on a three-yearly basis, was
postponed from last year due to the unscheduled closure of the Dudley Park
Aquatic Centre for urgent skylight repairs.
This is the first time the Kaiapoi
facility has been closed since the pool reopened in August 2013 following
extensive earthquake repair work.
While there is never a ‘good’ time
to close, the date of the closure was selected after a thorough study of
attendance figures in order to minimise the level of inconvenience to the
The data identified greater public
use of the pool during school term time, than during the holidays. The numbers

its normal hours, along with inflatable toys and KidsFest events.
We appreciate that there is no
ideal time to close a year round facility without having some impact on our
customers and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
