Poolsafe Accredi​​​tation

Did you know both the Westland Recreation Centre and Spring Creek Pool are Poolsafe approved pools? Being an approved 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.​​
