VILLAGE POOL OPENED ON MONDAY NOVEMBER 29 UNDER COVID-19 ALERT LEVEL 2 RESTRICTIONS

Village Pool is a four-pool outdoor complex located in the Havelock North Village Green.

Open during the summer months, the four-pool complex includes a 33-metre pool with dedicated lanes for lap swimming; a toddlers pools; learners pools; and two-metre deep pool.

The main pool and 2m deep pools are heated to 24 degrees, while the learners and toddlers pools are warmer at 27 degrees.

Shaded spots and a grassed area for games make Village Pool the perfect place to picnic after snacking up on goodies from our snack shop. We also provide a BBQ to hire.

A base for the Waimarama Surf Club and the Havelock North Swim Club, the Village Pool is also regularly used for school swimming sports.

OPEN HOURS

Village Pool opened November 29

To facilitate the higher demand at our summer pools, we will be operating three sessions daily with a cap on numbers (100 swimmers, excluding staff and coaches and up to 50 non-swimming spectators). There will be a 30 minute break between sessions to allow for cleaning of touch points and high use areas.

Session times:

  • 9:30am - 12:00pm
  • 12:30pm - 3:00pm
  • 3:30pm - 6:00pm

Village Pool will run 1 hour swimming only sessions in the main pool Monday - Thursday, 8:00am-9:00am with a max capacity of 39 people.

Entry will be on a first-in, first-serve basis. Once capacities are met there will be no further admittance to the session.

A queuing system will be in place near the entry point to Village Pool but away from the main access point to avoid creating a pinch point.

From Friday December 3, when Hawke's Bay moves into the COVID-19 Protection Framework (i.e. Traffic Light System) at the orange traffic light setting, the following operating model will apply:

  • Capacity will be increased to 500 people . Private bookings will be assessed individually. We reserve the right to reduce the capacity limits if necessary.
  • We will no longer be running sessions. Public opening times will revert to 10:00am-6:00pm, 7 days a week. Dedicated lane swimming will continue at Havelock North Village Pool between 9:00am-10:00am Monday - Thursday.
  • When we have events or bookings that require Covid Vaccination Certificates (CVCs) we will be shutting to the public.
  • As the pools are outdoor facilities, masks are only required when entering the facility.
  • QR code scanning or signing in for contact tracing is still required.
