Auckland Council opens new Albany Stadium Pool

January 30, 2017

Auckland Council has opened its new state-of-the-art Albany Stadium Pool, catering to the growing population in the North Auckland area.

Located near QBE Stadium, the new centre has a different offering to other pools in the Council’s aquatic and recreation network - focusing on fun and activity - with a zero depth splash pad area providing toddlers with their first aquatic experience with exciting splash and spray water toys, while the shallow childrens’ pool includes a slide and an array of water features for young ones to develop confidence in the water.

Other facilities include a dedicated 20 metre learn to swim pool, adult spa and sauna, fully equipped fitness centre and a group exercise studio offering holistic fitness classes and a variety of water activities, inflatables and an over-the-pool rock-climbing wall.

Upper Harbour local board Chair Lisa Whyte says the new centre is a necessary addition to the council’s network of leisure facilities, stating “it’s about families having fun and building confidence in the water. We’re surrounded by coastline, so we need facilities where we can learn to swim, and be more confident in and around the water, in an affordable way.”

Albany Stadium Pool Manager Tanya Langenbach says the response from the community for the centre’s opening has been positive, adding “there is definitely a buzz about the place and we are getting floods of enquiries each day. We have also allocated all 800 tickets for the free swim sessions during our opening weekend, which is fantastic.

“There will be some capacity for us to invite people in that don’t have an opening day ticket, but we are also running site tours and there are plenty of fun family activities to keep everyone entertained this weekend.”
