Stanmore Bay Pool and Leisure Centre


Our pool area including the splashpad will be closed from 6pm Sunday 25 March until 5.30am Monday 7 May. The upgrade will consist of repainting both pools, replacing the tiles around the pool, re-carpeting of the reception area. For our members who use the pools, we have a few options for you over this period:
– Swim It members are welcome to use any Auckland Council operated pools, nearest being Albany, Takapuna, Glenfield or Birkenhead (just show your membership card at the centre and let the team know you’re from Stanmore Bay)
– We can also transfer your Swim It membership into a Gym It (fitness gym only) or Move It (group fitness classes only) if you’d like to try something new
– Or, you may like to put your membership on hold for no charge.

Aquatics at Stanmore Bay
