Your local centre for water fun and fitness, Papatoetoe Centennial Pools are perfect for year-round enjoyment! With heated indoor pools, including a 25m lane pool, 15m learner’s pool and a super-fun toddler’s splash pool for the little ones, you can work out, train, or play to your heart’s content – or relax in the spa pool or sauna if that’s more your speed!

During summer, our 50m outdoor pool is open to cool you down or allow you to get in some serious training.
