Upcoming summer pool closure at Coastlands Aquatic Centre
Urgent maintenance work is needed on the main pool at the Coastlands Aquatic Centre in Paraparaumu early in 2017.
Kāpiti Coast District Council Parks and Recreation Manager Alison Law says there is a hole in the vinyl pool liner, or ‘Myrtha’, and the concrete slab under the liner is exposed.
“The slab’s not designed to be in contact with chlorinated water and the liner makes the pool watertight, protecting the slab,” she says.
“We anticipate that the main pool will be closed for up to three weeks in February to allow us to inspect the pool and carry out the required repair works.”
The programmes pool, toddlers’ pool, hydroslide, spa and sauna and Plunge Café will remain open, but there will be changes to the group exercise and learn-to-swim classes in the main pool.
The Council’s other pool in Waikanae is open as normal.
“We understand this is an inconvenience and frustrating in the height of summer and we’re sorry about that, but we do want to get this sorted as soon as we can,” Ms Law says.
