Summer Pools Reducing Hours 2023
Due to the summer season coming to an end and pools staff returning back to study and full-time jobs, we have had to reduce the hours of our outdoor swimming pools.
From Monday 27 February, the operating hours for the Tīrau and Putāruru outdoor pools will be as follows:
We feel very fortunate to be able to operate throughout the majority of the summer considering the lifeguard shortage has been a nationwide issue this summer. We thank all of our pools users for their understanding and look forward to seeing you around until the summer ends!
