Graham Condon Pools

Revamp for Graham Condon

This summer we're carrying out work to improve our facility, meaning we'll be closed temporarily.

Work will start on mid-January 2020 and is being carried out in two phases. The main hall and gym will be completed first and re-open in early February 2020, while the remainder of the centre – including pools – will re-open at the start of April 2020.

During the closure period the community are encouraged to use Jellie Park Recreation and Sports Centre and Tairoa QEII or our outdoor pools, which are open over the summer. People with specific memberships at Graham Condon will be able to use other centres.
