Coastlands Aquatic Centre to temporarily close for maintenance in March
Kāpiti Coast District Council has advised that its Coastlands Aquatic Centre will temporarily close its doors to the public from Friday 19th March to Tuesday 6th April 2021 for maintenance work.
This work includes programmed maintenance on the hydraulic cylinders of the main pool’s moveable floor, replacement of specialised floor sealants and upkeep of tiled surfaces in and around the facility. Given the wet environment, extra time is required to properly cure the specialist coatings. Other general works and a deep cleanse will also be undertaken before reopening.
Kāpiti Coast District Council Aquatic Facilities Manager, Steve Millar explained “our Aquatic Centre is a well-used and much-loved community asset and to ensure we can continue to provide our swimmers with a safe facility in superb condition, we need to undertake regular maintenance.
"While we’ve carefully timed this work to allow us to extend our season at Waikanae Pool and ensure limited disruptions to our classes and programmes, we know this temporary closure will be an inconvenience to our regular visitors.
"Taking the time for proactive maintenance significantly reduces the risk of bigger issues in the future that may end up costing more and causing great disruption. Investing in our facility now means our community can continue to enjoy it well into the future."
Swimmers are encouraged to use either the Ōtaki Pool or Waikanae Pools during the closure. Learn to Swim and Aquafitness programmes are available at both pools.
Millar added “if you haven’t tried our other facilities, the closure will be a great opportunity to do so before our team welcomes the community back to the Aquatic Centre on Tuesday 6th April.”
The Council is also currently inviting input to Kāpiti Coast Aquatic's annual customer satisfaction survey, advising "we'd love your feedback so we can identify what we're doing well and where we can improve."
