Alert Level 2

We are currently at Alert Level 2

In response to updated guidance from Sport New Zealand and Recreation Aotearoa, Splash Palace will be returning to our normal opening hours from Monday 18 October.

  • We’ve adjusted our procedures to allow club and group visits while still remaining open to the public.
  • We will be increasing lane swimming to two people per lane and creating buffer lanes between groups and the public.
  • We will be closing the learners pool to the public and resuming swimming lessons. We will continue to limit numbers in the leisure pool and will be opening every second shower in the changing rooms.

We understand that these procedures may mean longer wait times for some. If you’re planning a visit you can call us on (03) 217 7506 to see if there may be a wait.

These are extraordinary times and the team here at Splash Palace are looking forward to see you all back at the pool soon.
