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.
Inflatable Pool toys
Large inflatable pool toys are available at our pools.
The swimming season will begin at Paeroa Pool on Wednesday 30th October with modified hours.
Waihi pool opens from Saturday 16 November 2019.
Ngatea Pool was due to open on 16 November but has now been delayed due to repairs and repainting. Read more about the Ngatea pool opening delay.
Please see individual pools for opening hours:
