Keith Spry Pool upgrade

We’re upgrading Keith Spry Pool to make it an even better place to swim.

We're giving Keith Spry Pool a much needed refresh to smarten it up with the rest of Waitohi. 

It’s already underway, but now we’re preparing for the more major works which mean the main pool will be closed for four months from 14 Dec to the end of April. 

Opening hours for the facility will be 9.30am-5.30pm until early February. Hours may vary in Term 1, but we will provide updates ahead of time.

The project is split into three phases, over nine months: 

Stage one: September - October 

  • All pools remain open 
  • Refurbishment of Level one staff area

Stage two: 14 December - April 

  • Main pool will be closed for four months 
  • Works above spa, sauna and reception area to the ceiling and timber beams
  • Works to replace the skylight and install a new acoustic ceiling 
  • Lick of paint to brighten things up 

Stage three: April - June 

  • All pools are open again 
  • Accessible change closed 
  • Building a new multi-function space, upgrading accessible/family change rooms and building new public toilets on Frankmoore Avenue 

Impact on SwimWell 

SwimWell term one lessons will be impacted by the main pool closure, but we’ll be getting in touch early January with each affected customer to make alternative arrangements.
