Ngatea pool opening date no longer set in concrete
Unfortunately, investigations have exposed a few cracks in our plans to paint the Ngatea pool before splashing was supposed to start on 16 November.
Concrete surface getting a facelift
When we stripped off the old paint we found some cracks and damage to the concrete surface. This means the pool opening will be delayed until repairs and painting are complete. Like older homes, when you strip back layers, new issues get revealed and this is what has happened. Once repaired, this will be an improved asset for the community and minimise further issues. As work progresses, we will provide an update as soon as possible with a revised opening date.
We're sorry for the delay to your summer fun
The good news is we expect it to be ready before Christmas. In the meantime our Paeroa pool lifeguards are ready and waiting and would love to see you there. Paeroa pool opened on 30 October and our Waihi pool which is on track to open on 16 November.
