Parnell Baths reopen 25 January

Baths reopen 25 January

The much anticipated reopening of the Parnell Baths will be on Saturday, 25 January 2003 and will coincide with Anniversary weekend celebrations Auckland city wide.

The baths first opened in 1915 and have been the breeding and training ground for many serious and social swimmers alike.

They've also been the site of New Zealand films like 'Alex'. The facility is a favourite among many Aucklanders.

Auckland City Council’s $4.2m refurbishment project will see major improvements to this city icon including a division of the main pool into separate areas catering for fitness activities and more leisurely pursuits.

The heated leisure pool area will contain water toys and features, an adult spa pool, children’s spa pool and a toddler’s pool.

The pool landscape has also undergone changes with wind shelters, seating, new planting and paving.

A free entry open day hosted by celebrity DJ Peter Urlich will commence at 1.30pm with an assortment of family activities planned, prize give-aways and competitions.
