Start of Summer Pool Season

Published: 27-Oct-2017

By all reports, the paddling pool had a busy few days over the long weekend with Waikuku proving a popular spot for those people looking to soak up the sun.  The pool is now open and is set in the domain at Waikuku Beach.

The domain offers picnic opportunities, a skate bowl, playground complete with flying fox and short walks to the beach.  A quick reminder that the shade sails will be installed in early November to mitigate any potential damage from high winds or people letting off fireworks in the park around Guy Fawkes.

Contractors have begun the preparations for opening the Oxford pool with a wash down and touch up of the building and its surrounds.20171027_Oxford Pool

The water will be drained and fresh water circulated with chemical balancing and heating beginning in early to mid-November. Thanks to plant upgrade work in previous years, the system is now far more efficient, leading to shorter preparation times and more consistent temperatures throughout the season.

The pool will open to the public on Saturday 25 November with the season running through until 11 March 2018.
