Pool Project - 1 July update

​​​​Below are new photos of the work that is progressing well inside our building. The roof repairs will be complete by the end of this week and you will see some of the scaffolding has been removed from around the combined pool. The next step is to begin the planned repairs to the pool lining and flooring, once this has been completed we can begin refilling and reheating the pools. 

Work is currently on track and we are looking to reopen in early August. Watch this space.

Pool Project - 10 June update

Works are progressing well on the pool area, below is an onsite photo taken on Monday 8 June 2020. We can't wait for the pool to be open again and see all your smiling faces coming through the door.

We will continue to post updates as the project progresses.

In the meantime, you can enjoy the gym and stadium.​

Annual Maintenance​

We’re taking full advantage of the lockdown period to carry out our annual maintenance, as well as some other planned remedial works. Construction is allowed under Level 3 so we are moving full steam ahead on two big projects in the pool area – additional roof bracing and poolside flooring replacement. The roof bracing is the final stage of the roof beam replacement project, which was carried out a couple of years ago. The poolside flooring is now past its useful life and due for replacement. It has lifted in parts and regular users would have noticed the increasing number of mats o​n the floor to cover damaged areas. It made sense to do these projects now, as there was uncertainty about when pools would be allowed to reopen so we opted to proceed under Level 3, rather than potentially reopening then having to close again.

The pool will reopen to the public when these works are complete and in accordance with relevant alert levels guidelines. We will post updates and photos on our website as the projects are carried out. This is going to make our poolside look fabulous and we can’t wait to show off the completed product to our community ​​

​​Poolsafe Accredi​​​tation

Did you know both the Westland Recreation Centre and Spring Creek Pool are Poolsafe approved pools? Being an app​​roved Poolsafe pool means customers can expect:

  • Fully qualified and well trained lifeguards
  • A high standard ​of water quality
  • Robust health and safety systems
  • Best practise policies and procedures

It also means both facilities need to comply with Poolsafe approved supervision rules, which are:

  • ​Children under 8 years old need to be actively supervised by a parent or caregiver who is over the age of 16 years old. Actively supervised means watched from poolside or in the water with them.
  • Children under 5 years of age need to be directly supervised (within arm’s reach) of their parent of caregiver, who is over the age of 16. Children under the age of 5 cannot be in the combined pool without their parent/ caregiver. Children under the age of 5 can be in the baby beach alone if their parent is still within arms reach of that child.

We take pride in ensuring we are providing our customers with a safe and fun environment.​​
