Western Bay pools open with a party!

30 October 2020


Anyone for a free pool party? Western Bay of Plenty District Council is throwing open the pool gates in November to celebrate the start of summer and the opening of their public pools for the season.

Free pool parties will be held at Te Puke Memorial Pools on Saturday, 7 November and at the Dave Hume Pool in Katikati on the following Saturday, 14 November – both parties go from 11.30 until 1pm. They’ll be a load of fun with a free sausage sizzle and lots of spot prizes to be won. 

Council’s Reserves and Facilities Manager Peter Watson says the free parties are a great way for newcomers to the District to discover the pools in their area and for everyone else to have their first summer splash in their favourite local pool.

“These pool parties were very popular last year with many families and friends coming along to relax and have fun.

“Our two pools offer safe, affordable access for people who want to swim for fitness or pleasure – and for children, our pools are the perfect place to learn to swim in a safe environment.”

Pool staff will be on duty to keep an eye on everyone’s safety in the water and Council staff will be on hand to sizzle the sausages and hand out the prizes.
