Ōtara Pool and Leisure Centre

About the centre

Ōtara Pool and Leisure Centre is here to help you get active in a fun and supportive environment — whether that’s in the gym, going for a swim, joining a group fitness class or getting amongst our social sports leagues. We're proud to have something for the whole family.

Our double court stadium hosts lots of exciting competition events, but there're still plenty of times when you can drop in and play some basketball (or volleyball or netball) — or just shoot a few hoops.

We're passionate about our community and grateful to be right in the heart of Ōtara — close to other services and with plenty of parking available.

For swimmers with accessibility needs, a water wheelchair is available. Please note that the fitness centre is not accessible by wheelchair.

We welcome your enquiry! You can use the contact us form or, even better, come and visit us and let us show you all the fun of getting active.

Activities

School holiday programme

About our programme for 5 to 13-year-olds

We believe it takes a village to raise a child. Here at Ōtara Pool and Leisure Centre, we are that village.

As well as nurturing your child, our school holiday programme for 5 to 13-year-olds has a range of activities to keep them entertained. We teach them simple life skills like baking cookies. We have lots of fun making arts and crafts. We also provide them with lots of opportunities to get active.

We enjoy celebrating the various cultural weeks that are held during the year by memorising simple meal prayers, performing waitata and learning cultural dances.

Hours

The programme runs from 8am to 5pm.

Before programme care is available from 7am to 8am. After programme care is available from 5pm to 6pm.

Upcoming programme dates

  • 16 to 20 December 2019
  • 6 to 31 January 2020.

Grab a schedule from this website or your closest centre four to six weeks before the programme starts so you can choose and book your favourite activities!

 

Our prices

Our activities range in price from $27 to $50 per day.

You may be eligible for a WINZ Holiday Programme Subsidy. Visit the WINZ website for more information.

Out of school care

About us

Every day is different at our centre.

When the weather is warm we like to go to the pools for swimming lessons,  or we head to the stadium to master a new sport or let the kids' imaginations run wild in our arts and crafts sessions.

Our programmes are designed for all age groups and our friendly staff are on hand to help in every way - even with homework and providing a healthy afternoon snack.
