Khandallah Pool Opens

22 November 2011

Khandallah Pool, one of Wellington's outdoor swimming spots, opens this Saturday 26 November for its usual summer season.

  • The 30-metre unheated pool is popular with locals and the native bush setting provides a shady haven on a hot day.

  • Backing onto Khandallah Park, there are a number of walking tracks in the vicinity, including a route up Mount Kaukau, as well as picnic spots, a children's playground and cafe.

  • Khandallah is one of two open-air summer pools operated by Wellington City Council, the other being Thorndon Pool, which is heated.

  • The pool is open from 10.00am to 6.00pm every day, except Christmas Day, at 45 Woodmancote Road, Khandallah.
