We’ve got a beach wheelchair available for use and you can borrow it for a full day from Freyberg pool, 139 Oriental Parade. It's free of charge, and you can use it to travel on the sand and in the water at Oriental Bay.
You’ll need to show ID, and it’s best to book ahead of time. Phone 04 801 4530 for more information or to book.

Scooter use is free. No payment is required, you just need to show some form of ID. You can book a scooter for up to 4 hours. Advance bookings are recommended.
The other mobility scooters we had around the city were hardly used and old, so we've retired them. If you would like to talk to someone about this, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill in our online form.
