Cambridge Pool to open to residents
The wait is almost over for access to the highly anticipated Cambridge Pool with less than three weeks to go until its doors open to the public.
Residents will be able to take a first dip at the Perry Aquatic Centre in Cambridge for the first time on Saturday 15 May.
Waipā mayor Jim Mylchreest said the day would be a momentous occasion for both Council and the community.
“We are incredibly excited to open this amazing space and share it with our residents. This is a top of the line facility and we know people will absolutely love it.”
Mylchreest said a public opening event would be held on the day so the occasion could be celebrated by the whole community.
“This project has required a great deal of patience and understanding from our residents so to honour that, we along with GoWaipa, will be holding an event for all to attend.
“We are still working on the finer details of this event but it will be a great day. We look forward to celebrating with our community.”
Details of the event will be released in the coming weeks.
The facility boasts a new 10-lane 25m indoor pool, a toddler pool, hydrotherapy pool, spa, sauna, children’s splash pad and an upgrade of the existing 50-metre outdoor pool.
Entrance is $8 for adults, $5 for children and $5 for senior citizens.
