Summer Splash

Summer has arrived early this year – for now anyway. Knowing Canterbury’s changeable weather anything could happen, but if you’re looking to take your little ones somewhere to cool off this weekend, the Waikuku paddling pool in the domain is open to the public.

As well as the paddling pool, the domain offers picnic areas, a skate bowl, playground complete with flying fox and it’s just a short walk to the beach if you want to brave the ocean.2017_Waikuku Beach Pool

To offer sun protection shade sails will be installed over the paddling pool in early November. These are put up a little later to avoid any damage from strong spring winds or from people letting off fireworks in the park around Guy Fawkes.

The Waimakariri has second outdoor pool located in Oxford. This supervised facility opens to the public on Saturday 25 November and runs for a 15 week season over summer. It will close on 11 March 2018.
