New Features for Waikuku Paddling Pool

Published: 23-Oct-2019

Summer is not complete without a visit to Waikuku Beach’s iconic paddling pool and with warmer weather just around the corner, final touches are almost complete for Wally the Whale to welcome back excited visitors.

This year, the paddling pool will boast two new water features, making the space even more interactive and entertaining for children.  While the recent wet weather has made the installation of the new equipment tricky, contractors have worked hard to get the pool ready for its opening on Saturday 2 November.

Preparations for summer elsewhere in the district are also well under way, with the Oxford Community Aquatic Centre due to open later in November.  The popular facility includes a four lane 25m lap pool and a smaller learner’s pool suitable for smaller children.

All Waimakariri Aquatic Facilities will be open every day over the summer holiday period apart from Christmas Day. Check out the Aquatic Facilities page for more information and full holiday hours.

The team at Waimakariri Aquatic Centres look forward to welcoming people back to Waikuku Beach Paddling Pool and the Oxford Aquatic Centre.
