Swimming Pool

Come and enjoy swimming and training at Waimate's outdoor heated pool with facilities for all ages and abilities.

The swimming pool is currently closed for the summer 2019 season. It will open again at Labour weekend.


Norman Kirk Memorial Swimming Pool

The Norman Kirk Memorial Swimming Pool is kept comfortably warm, with temperatures between 28C and 32C. 

The 33.8 m long pool has six lanes. The complex has plenty of seating, a grassed area, BBQ, shaded paddling pool for toddlers, and a shop.  Pool toys, flippers, and flutter boards are provided free of charge.

The pool is well supported by the Waimate Swimming Club, which provides swimming lessons and organises competition swimming. There are a number of swimming carnival competition days with swimming clubs outside of Waimate. 

During the holidays the pool runs fun days for the children.  The pool can also be hired for group functions by firms or clubs.

The pool is open from Labour weekend until mid March.
