Summer pool party season returns

Christchurch City Council is making a splash this summer by opening three of its popular outdoor pools.

The Jellie Park 50-Metre Outdoor Pool and the Halswell Aquatic Centre will reopen on Saturday 17 November, followed by Templeton Pool on Monday 10 December.

Mayor Bob Parker says the reopening of the pools is a well-deserved treat for Christchurch fun-seekers.

“Traditionally, we’ve always looked forward to the opening of our outdoor pools as one of the first signs of a Christchurch summer, so it’s with great pleasure that we invite families to take time out to splash around and enjoy what promises to be some beautiful summer weather.”

From Saturday 15 December, the popular series of Summer Pool Parties will return, helping to sustain the fun throughout the season. MORE FM will be on-hand with games, competitions, prizes and plenty of Streets ice creams. Listen to MORE FM on 92.1 FM for all the details.

Saturday 15 December – Summer Kick Start, Jellie Park, noon–4pm
Tuesday 18 December – Mums and Bubs Splash Sesh, Halswell Aquatic Centre, 10.30am–12.30pm
Friday 21 December – School's Out For Summer, Jellie Park, 2.30pm–5.30pm
Sunday 6 January – Farm Yard Fun, Halswell Aquatic Centre, noon–3pm
Sunday 20 January – Kool Kids Market Day, Halswell Aquatic Centre, noon–4pm
Sunday 27 January – Search for a Star, Jellie Park, noon–3pm
Saturday 9 February – Back to School Bash, Halswell Aquatic Centre, noon–4pm
Sunday 24 March – Final Splash Down, Jellie Park, noon–4pm

Waltham Lido Pool and Lyttelton Norman Kirk Memorial Pool will remain closed this summer due to earthquake damage. Both pools are among 30 projects prioritised by the Council in September for further investigations, funding and, where possible, repairs under the Council's Facilities Rebuild Plan project. Investigations into possible repair options for both pools are continuing.
