Waikuku Beach Paddling Pool

Spring into summer! Now that the days are getting longer and hotter, we are preparing to open the Waikuku Beach Paddling Pool.

From Saturday 26 October right throughout summer you can come cool off in the 'whale pool' and have a play in the spray.

The Waikuku Beach Paddling Pool features a spraying whale, three floor sprays and an outdoor shower. A mural has been painted on the western wall of the pump and filter room and visitors to the pool will have access to an outdoor fresh water shower.
