Hauraki District Council operates three community pools located in Ngatea, Paeroa and Waihi.

All of the pools are heated to a temperature of 27 degrees Celsius.

The Council employs lifeguards along with a supervisor to oversee the day to day operation of the pools.

Parents and caregivers are encouraged to dress babies and infants in ‘Little Swimmers’, which can be purchased on-site, so nobody has to worry about accidents.

Pools are open daily during the summer months. Refer to the individual pool to view the times, activities, and days closed.
