Porirua City has two swimming complexes: the Arena Aquatic Centre and Cannons Creek Pool.

Arena Aquatic Centre

People travel far and wide to enjoy the the Arena Aquatic Centre at Te Rauparaha Arena. It’s not just a pool – it’s an entertainment zone! 

The Centre has a heated 25m seven-lane swimming pool, free-form wave pool, toddlers pool, two spa pools, sauna, steam room, hydroslide, ‘lazy river’, and inflatables for the kids on special occasions.

We run aquatic exercise programmes and aqua jogging is very popular.

We have a pool hoist (ensuring people of all abilities can enjoy the water).

There's also multiple changing room options (separate male, female, and family rooms).

Cannons Creek Pool

Our newly refurbished Cannons Creek pool is a classic community pool. It's the base of Dash Swim School, perfect for young or old to learn to swim at 25m long, 1m deep and a constant temperature of 30ºC. 

Cannons Creek pool is open to the public 7 days a week. 

We're available for private hire for birthdays and other events, with plenty of onsite parking and easy access.

Need a little more encouragement to get the family togged  up? How about free swim sessions in the weekends? Saturdays from 2-4 pm, and Sundays from 1-4 pm (if not booked for birthdays or private hire).
